MORE ABOUT THE READERS Chris Olander's debut book of poems is River Light. Kirk Lumpkin says, "What has always impressed me about Chris Olander's poetry is how present, how kinetically alive the energies of Nature (birds, oaks, rivers, etc.) are in it and of how the words dance in the breath and sinew of it." Chris Olander is a performance poet, teacher, and naturalist, and a California Poets in the Schools poet-teacher and Poetry Out Loud coach.
Kim Shuck is the current Poet Laureate of San Francisco. Her latest publication is the chapbook Sidewalk NDN. Her other books include the books of poems Smuggling Cherokee, for which she won the Diane Decorah first book award by the Native Writers Circle of the Americas, Clouds Running In, and the prose work Rabbit Stories.
