Poets Ben and Sandra Doller will read from their work.  Sandra Doller (nee Miller) will read from Chora, her second collection of poems. "Sandra Doller’s tricky, sly language comes at you sideways, full of coinages and puns, and is obsessed with lines: the highways and train tracks that cross deserts; lines from jokes and ghost stories; and lines of influence—Gertrude Stein implicitly and H.D. explicitly."  —John Yau
Ben Doller will read from his third book, Dead Ahead.  Ben Doller (formerly Doyle)'s  first book of poems, Radio, Radio was selected by Susan Howe as winner of the 2000 Walt Whitman Award from the Academy of American Poets. He has taught in West Virginia, Iowa, Ohio, and California. Dead Ahead is a dazzling book from a seriously funny poet.
