MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Maxine Chernoff’s new book of poems is Under the Music: Collected Prose Poems. Peter Orner says, “It is time to acknowledge that Maxine Chernoff is a national treasure…Who has a voice like hers, able to penetrate so deep into the roots of life’s pain and awkwardness and sometime beauty? I could quote any one of these aching, uproarious and, above all, humane pieces and you’d see what I mean.…” Author of more than a dozen books of poetry, including Here, Without, and To Be Read in the Dark, she is also a fiction author and a translator: with Paul Hoover she translated The Selected Poems of Friedrich Hölderlin, which won the 2009 PEN Translation Award. She and Hoover founded and edited New American Writing. Among her honors, a PIP Gertrude Stein Award for Innovative Poetry, a Carl Sandburg Award in Poetry, and fellowships including the National Endowment for the Arts.
Gillian Conoley’s new book of poems is A Little More Red Sun on the Human: New & Selected Poems. The Antioch Review says, “Here we find the peculiarly American matter-of-factness of the small-town exotic coming face-to-face with intellectual high-brow energy. Carson McCullers meets Gertrude Stein.” Among her previous collections are Profane Halo, The Plot Genie, and Peace, which was named a Standout Book for 2014 by the Academy of American Poets and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. She published her translations of Henri Michaux, Thousand Times Broken, in 2014, and she edits Volt magazine. Other honors include the Jerome J. Shestack Poetry Prize, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, a Fund for Poetry Award, and a 2017 Shelley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America
