Mel Nichols will read from her new collection of poems, Catalytic Exteriorization Phenomenon, a National Poetry Series finalist in 2009. She is also the author of Bicycle Day from Slack Buddha Press. Nichols teaches at George Mason University. "In Mel Nichols’ uncanny world each day unfolds into the next line and then into inexplicable music. Her voice is acute, active, up close, and magisterial all at once. Catalytic Exteriorization Phenomenon is a dazzling achievement." —Peter Gizzi
