Poetry Night in Berkeley with Judy Wells & Friends

August 11 @ 7:00 pm

Judy Wells, Evelyn Posamentier, and Natasha Sajé will read as part of the Last Word Reading Series, and there is also an open reading.

Judy Wells’ latest poetry collection, The Glass Ship (Sugartown Publishing), completes her trilogy of Irish-themed works, including Everything Irish and Call Home (Scarlet Tanager Books). She has three works-in-progress: Dear Phebe: her New England-to-California Dickinson ancestor poems; The Old People Monologues from A-Z; and Night at the Musée d’Orsay: Poems of Paris and other Great European Cities.

Evelyn Posamentier is the author of Royal Blue Car (just released from Raw ArT Press!), brainography, and Poland At The Door. Originally from New York City, she now lives in San Francisco. Her subject matter ranges from European history to the lives of people who live on the edge in San Francisco. Jack Foley says of Royal Blue Car “…as long as we sing, we live. These poems are…vibrant, obsessive, crazy with sorrow, but beautifully alive…the singing is the point.”

Natasha Sajé teaches at Westminster College in Salt Lake City and in the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA in Writing Program. She is the author of three books of poems, most recently Vivarium (Tupelo, 2014); a poetry handbook, Windows and Doors: A Poet Reads Literary Theory (Michigan, 2014); and many essays.
