MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Christopher Buckley’s new book of poems is Chaos Theory. Gerald Stern says, “There is a deep nostalgia here, but also wisdom and common sense, and beautiful writing. I welcome him at his maturest, poet of stardust.” Author of some twenty books of poems, including Star Journal: Selected Poems, Back Room at the Philosopher’s Club, Varieties of Religious Experience, and Rolling the Bones; his honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, four Pushcart Prizes, two awards from the Poetry Society of America, and two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. He has also edited numerous anthologies, several of them with Gary Young, including The Geography of Home: California’s Poetry of Place and Bear Flag Republic: Prose Poems and Poetics from California.

Gary Young is the author of eight books of poems. His new collection of prose poems is That’s What I Thought, winner of the 2017 Lexi Rudnitsky Editor’s Choice Award. Mark Jarman says, “The warmth and honesty of Young’s poems are as durable as their precision and insight.” Also a printer and a book artist, his print work has been widely shown, including at the Museum of Modern Art and The Getty Center for the Arts. In 2010, he was named the first ever Poet Laureate of Santa Cruz County. Some of his honors include a 2009 Shelley Memorial Award, a Pushcart Prize, a William Carlos Williams Award from the Poetry Society of America, and two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
