at Betabrand, 780 Valencia St.(map)
I’m excited and honored to be reading with Blas, Dawn, Elizabeth, Mary, and a lottery of other talented poets from the 2012 Squaw Valley conference. Come join us for an hour of great poetry.
from the official Lit Crawl announcement —
Celebrate the publication of The 2012 Squaw Valley Review, where alumni poets continue the tradition of publishing a collection of poems in which the first drafts were written during the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley. In addition to readings from our featured poets, other authors published in the anthology will be chosen via lottery to read. Featuring Phillip Barron, Blas Falconer, Dawn McGuire, Elizabeth McLagan, and Mary Winegarden.
Phillip Barron taught philosophy at UNC-Chapel Hill and now teaches digital humanities at UC Davis. He is co-editor of OccuPoetry and the 2012 Squaw Valley Review.
Blas Falconer is author of The Foundling Wheel and A Question of Gravity and Light. He teaches at USC and in the low-residency MFA program at Murray State University.
Dawn McGuire is a neurologist and author of three collections, including The Aphasia Cafe, winner of the 2013 Indie Book Award for Poetry.
Elizabeth McLagan was the 2009 winner of Bellingham Review’s 49th Parallel Award, and her collection of poems, In the White Room, was just released by CW Books.
Mary Winegarden’s debut collection, The Translator’s Sister, was a 2012 winner of the Before Columbus Foundation’s American Book Award. She teaches at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
