MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Marilyn Chin's new book of poems is Hard Love Province. Joy Harjo says of it, "In these poem-songs counterparts make a counterpoint of sorrow and glee. It's all happening here in this book. Chin's most inspired and inspiring collection yet." Born in Hong Kong and raised in Portland, Oregon, her poetry invents unforgettable voices and forms of Pacific Rim assimilation and resistance. Marilyn Chin has published three previous full-length collections of poetry—Dwarf Bamboo; The Phoenix Gone, The Terrace Empty; and Rhapsody in Plain Yellow. Among her honors are a PEN/Josephine Miles Award, five Pushcart Prizes, and fellowships for the United States Artists Foundation and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
Jana Harris's new book is You Haven't Asked About My Wedding or What I Wore: Poems of Courtship on the American Frontier. Based on thirty years of primary research of nineteenth-century frontier women, the poet Jana Harris uses her compelling poetry to resurrect a forgotten history. Louise Bernikow says, "A marvel of storytelling and a totally unique way of breathing life into stuffy archives, making women's lives hum, with its acute sense of place and language. It's a thrilling, daring work." Jana Harris teaches creative writing at the University of Washington and at the Writer's Workshop in Seattle. She is the editor of Switched-on Gutenberg and the author, most recently, of Horses Never Lie about Love.
