13 OCTOBER 2016 — thursday

Poetry Flash presents a poetry reading by Lenore Weiss, Mortal, and Therése Halscheid, Frozen Latitudes, request ASL interpreters one week in advance at editor@poetryflash.org, wheelchair accessible, Moe's Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, 7:30 (510/849-2087, www.moesbooks.com)

MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Therése Halscheid's new book of poems is Frozen Latitudes. Paul Lisicky says, "The wrenching attempt to comprehend a father's dementia fires Therése Halscheid's Frozen Latitudes. Past starvation, past an encounter with a demanding landscape, the poet emerges tougher, wiser, her compassion intact." Her previous collections include Powertalk, Without Home, and Uncommon Geography, which was a finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize. A photographer as well as a poet, she's traveled widely through cultural exchange programs, teaching in England and Russia, and through the Alaskan Arts Council with an Inupiaq Eskimo tribe on White Mountain; her photography has chronicled her journeys and been in juried shows. She's received fellowships from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and the New Jersey Council for the Arts.
Lenore Weiss's new book of poems is Mortal. Sharon Doubiago says, "Lenore Weiss's psychic linguistic engagement borders on the surreal, on the transcendent, the mystical, the magical, and on the mundane and familiar." She's published two earlier books of poems, Cutting Down the Last Tree on Easter Island and Two Places. She's blogged for the Jewish Book Council and Basmati, and she works as copy editor for the Blue Lyra Review.
