Gratitude to these generous contributors to Moon Shadow Sanctuary Press’s most recent release, purifying wind (available as an e-book or in paperback) for these lovely readings of their work. The anthology features forty-three poets from five countries writing on themes varying from dating, to end-of-life, to habitats and habits of the vulture itself, and commenting on ritual, connection, justice and more. Here, twelve poets and I read from the collection, reading their own work and the work of others. In the first video, you will hear d. ellis phelps reading Liz Jacoby and Chella Courington (plus a couple of poems from her new book, what holds her), Lori Bonati, Judith Youngers, Chella Courington reading Linda Simone and Lori Bonati, Jean Hackett, Stuart Gunter, and Jean Ryan. In the subsequent videos and soundtrack, you’ll hear Carol Price, Jennifer Schomberg Kanke, Jason O’Toole, Rohn Bayes and William Blackburn.
Now, I’ll let the poets speak for themselves.
Carol Price reading The Lammergeyer
Jennifer Schomberg Kanke reading In Corn Rows Hidden
Jason O’Toole reading Highway Department Auxillary
Rohn Bayes reading Hwy 190
& William Blackburn reading Picking the Bones
