MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Lola Haskins's new book of poems is Asylum: Improvisations on John Clare. W.S. Merwin says, "Lola Haskins writes with the startling freedom and grace of a kite flying and with the variety and assurance of invention that reveal, in image after image, the dream of the waking world." She has published twelve collections of poetry and three books of prose. Her honors include the Iowa Poetry Prize, two Florida Book Awards, two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Emily Dickinson Prize from the Poetry Society of America. She is also the current Honorary Chancellor of the Florida State Poets Association.
Colby Gillette's debut collection is Hymn Underground. Donald Revell says, "Amidst the empty tumult and febrile, futile clamor of so many poets now, Colby Gillette stands fast and, standing, gives quickening evidence to things imperishable…The phrases of the sun and nomenclature of starlight in the human eye resound with true, with effortless certainty here. These are poems the planet can believe." He is the author of two chapbooks, Without Repair and Red of the Dawnbreakers: Translations of René Char. Widely published in literary journals, he lives in Pittsburgh.
