  Naming our Precarious Loves: Poetry by Tess Taylor, Rachel Richardson, Noah Warren and Ari Banias

Thursday, September 8, 7:30 p.m.

RSVP HERE.

 

What does it mean to belong to the increasingly slippery present? Come celebrate harvest season with four acclaimed new California poets as they take on technology, rootedness, longing, apocalypse, and the complex cartographies of desire.

Rachel Richardson, HUNDRED-YEAR WAVE

Rachel Richardson has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the arts and the Wallace Stegner Program at Stanford. Her poetry collection Hundred-Year Wave juxtaposes the grand quests of Ahab and Melville with the quotidian journeys of contemporary motherhood. The San Francisco Chronicle says of the book that "ancestry, history and the whaling industry unite in a lived present, and the poem becomes a visceral experience.... Over and over Hundred-Year Wave locates the tender self in a wide expanse of sea."

 
 

Noah Warren, THE DESTROYER IN THE GLASS

Noah Warren is the author of The Destroyer in the Glass, winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets. His poems have appeared in The Southern Review, The Yale Review, Poetry, Agni, The Missouri Review, Poetry Daily, and elsewhere. A Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford, he lives in Palo Alto.

 
  Ari Banias, ANYBODY

Ari Banias is the author of Anybody. His poems appear or are forthcoming in American Poetry Review, Boston Review, Poetry, A Public Space, Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics, and elsewhere. He lives in Berkeley
