MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Cathy Colman's new book of poems is Time Crunch. Patricia Smith says, "The textured and lyrically lush narratives in Time Crunch—deftly-honed poems that titillate and resound long after their last lines—firmly establish Cathy Colman as a fierce and formidable voice destined to be a stalwart presence in the contemporary canon." Her first collection, Borrowed Dress, won the 2001 Felix Pollak Prize for Poetry and immediately made it to The Los Angeles Times Bestseller List; her second is Beauty's Tattoo. Other honors include a Browning Award for Poetry and the Ascher Montandon Award for Poetry. She's also been a reviewer for The New York Times Book Review.
Sam Sax's latest book of poems is Bury It. Tyehimba Jess says, "Bury It, Sam Sax's urgent, thriving excavation of desire, is lit with imagery and purpose that surprises and jolts at every turn.…A vitalizing and necessary book of poems that dig hard and lift luminously." Bury It received the 2017 James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. Their first collection, Madness, won the National Poetry Series. A queer Jewish writer and educator, they are a two-time Bay Area Grand Slam champion, and have received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Lambda Literary, The MacDowell Colony, the Blue Mountain Center, and the Michener Center for Writers.
