Please join us at a book party for two of our favorite poets: Rebecca Foust and Kirsten Jones Neff. You’ll be treated to beautiful poetry, the sparkling ambiance of our favorite Bay Area bookstore, a celebratory champagne toast for the authors, cookies, and excellent company.

Rebecca Foust’s All That Gorgeous, Pitiless Song recently won the Many Mountains Moving Book Award. Also forthcoming in 2010 is God, Seed, a book of environmental poetry with watercolors by a local artist. Foust’s chapbooks, Mom’s Canoe and Dark Card won the Robert Phillips Poetry Prizes in 2007 and in 2008, and her poetry is or will be published in Atlanta Review, Margie, North American Review, The Hudson Review, and elsewhere.

Kirsten Jones Neff’s first chapbook, When The House is Quiet, won the 2009 Starting Gate Prize and a 2010 Pushcart nomination from Finishing Line Press.  Kirsten Jones Neff is a writer, gardening teacher and documentary filmmaker whose work has appeared in several PBS films, periodicals and anthologies, including When The Muse Calls: Poems for The Creative Life, The Believer,, Writer’s Advice, The Poetry Farmer’s Almanac, Ode, 34th Parallel and The Marin Poetry Center Anthology.

Come early. These two poets have been known to draw crowds!
