9 JUNE 2016 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a reading by British poet Claire Crowther and Sacramento poet Susan Kelly-DeWitt from their new books, request ASL interpreters one week in advance from, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087,

Claire Crowther’s new book of poems is On Narrowness. Poetry Review says, “Claire Crowther is a poet whose confident, highly sensuous explorations of language and gender deserve to be read and recognized.” She is a UK poet returning to Berkeley on her second visit. Her previous two collections are Stretch of Closures, shortlisted for the Aldeburgh Best First Collection Prize, and The Clockwork Gift. She is also the author of three poetry chapbooks, and a fourth, Bare George, written as part of her residency at the Royal Mint Museum, is forthcoming.
Susan Kelly-DeWitt’s new book of poems is Spider Season. Frank Gaspar says, “Susan Kelly-DeWitt finds poems everywhere, or perhaps they find her, falling around her like snowflakes or cascading leaves…She sees the world her way and writes her mind. And this is exactly what good poets do.” She’s published numerous previous collections, most recently The Fortunate Islands and Cassiopeia Above the Banyan Tree. A former Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, she has been widely published, and anthologized in The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry, When She Named Fire: An Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry, and elsewhere. She is a contributing editor of Poetry Flash, and a member of the National Book Critics Circle and Northern California Book Reviewers.
