Amy King

It's Christmastime, and what better way to celebrate than with good food, good wine, a good friend ... and her poems. In this reading, Amy King takes us to dinner, but it is not bread alone that we enjoy. King's poems don't simply satisfy, they challenge us to reconsider our assumptions about language itself.

Donna Stonecipher

As the holidays begin we are proud to present Donna Stonecipher. Her poetic narratives suggest the possibilities of unconscious life, experienced as we sleep, whether dreams or nightmares. But listeners will find that Stonecipher’s affecting images are the products of an acutely awake and aware existence. They are, in fact, hyper-real. She allows us a rare glimpse of the sublime that appears only when we are brave enough to contemplate so thoroughly as to overcome those fictions that conveniently insulate our psyches and create our false notions of “reality." Please enjoy Donna
