Poets Arra Lynn Ross, James Cihlar and William Reichard will read from their work. Arra Lynn Ross will read from her first collection of poems, Seedlip and Sweet Apple. This pioneering collection of poems "reaffirms the tradition of American visionaries even while reshaping their tradition into an innovative and dynaimc lyric." – D.A. Powell  

 

James Cihlar is a graduate of The Iowa Writers' Workshop. He will read from his first book of poems, Undoing.  "Here is forgiveness and joy, and the wisdom that comes, who knows how, through the measured language of memory that will not come undone."  – Hilda Raz  

 

William Reichard will read from Sin Eater, his fourth collection of poems. It is also the final volume of a trilogy that opened with How To and continued with This Brightness.  "The swelling heart of these poems is musical and haunting: Love and loss, family, doubt and faith, childhood pain and regret. Sin Eater is a magnificent book."  – Alex Lemon
