MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Jane Downs is a poet, fiction writer, and essayist. The author of three chapbooks, including April Elegy, she is also one of four poets published in The Book of Now, Poetry for the Rising Tide; her poems have appeared in Ashville Poetry Review, Spillway, The North American Review, and many other journals.

Kathleen Weaver’s debut book of poems is Too Much Happens. Alissa Valles says, “The poems in this book move simultaneously toward clarity and compassion, traveling through geological time to achieve a perspective in which the contemporary world’s cruelties and depredations can be faced, free of rhetoric and posturing, with an ascetic, often witty justice.” A translator, biographer, and editor as well as a poet, Kathleen Weaver’s books include Where the island Sleeps Like a Wing: Selected Poetry, by Nancy Morejón; Nicaraguan Sketches, by Julio Cortázar; and Fire from the Mountain: The Making of a Sandinista, by Omar Cabezas—all translations from the Spanish—and the biography with poetry translations Peruvian Rebel: The World of Magda Portal. She has also co-edited The Other Voice: Twentieth Century Women Poets in Translation and Penguin Book of Women Poets.
