Poets Dobby Gibson & Zachary Schomburg

The poems in Dobby Gibson’s new book transform the everyday into the revelatory. Little Glass Planet (Graywolf) exults in the strangeness of the known and unknowable world. In poems set as far afield as Mumbai and Marfa, Texas, Gibson maps disparate landscapes, both terrestrial and subliminal, to reveal the drama of the quotidian. Elegiac, funny, and candid, Little Glass Planet is a kind of manual for paying attention to a world that is increasingly engineered to distract us from our own humanity. In Zachary Schomburg’s own words, Pulver Maar (Black Ocean) “is a collection of poems written between 2014 and 2018. Some of the poems are long, and some of them are short.” These are every bit the poems you’ve come to dream of, long…

Sarah Townsend and Liz Scott Reading and in Conversation about their Memoirs

Authors Sarah Townsend and Liz Scott in conversation about their memoirs.

Setting the Wire is a visceral reflection on the experience of fragmentation as a young psychotherapist and new mother. Liz Scott’s memoir, This Never Happened, goes in search of the answers to the mysteries of her family. In her relentless quest to uncover the truth, she mines photographs and letters, leaving no one, including herself, unexamined. This is a spare work, alternately heartbreaking and darkly…

Kevin Scott

In The Voice of This Stone (Carpe Diem), a respected volcanologist with five decades of scientific study and boots-on-the-ground experience shares his expert knowledge. Through more than a dozen case studies from around the globe, Kevin Scott offers chilling details about what happened before, during, and after infamous volcanic cataclysms.
