Please join us here at Book Passage for a special night of poetry! Wolf Ridge Press, a small poetry publication firm, will be launching new works, featuring Elizabeth Percer (Ultrasound), Rick Benjamin (Floating World), Harvey Ellis (Sleep Not Sleep), David Watts, Nils Patterson, Jon Sedaghatfar, and Joan Barandu.
Elizabeth Percer is a poet and novelist, and author of An Uncommon Education. She is a three- time nominee for the Pushcart Prize and has twice been honored by the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Foundation. She lives in Northern California with her husband and three children. Ultrasound is her first poetry collection.
Harvey Ellis is the alter ego of David Watts, named for a machine of the imagination designed to excavate the deep unconscious for the unusual images of a more associative poetic style. Three volumes of his works have been published.
Rick Benjamin is the State Poet of Rhode Island. He has taught at Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design, the MFA program in Interdisciplinary Arts at Goddard College, and in community centers—where he has passed good time in the company of people who range in age from six to ninety-six. His first book, Passing Love, was published in 2010.
Readers will also read from the two books published by Rick Benjamin: Passing Love and Floating World.
Additional Readers: These poets will read from Poems for the Time Capsule, a Wolf Ridge Press anthology: Wolf Ridge Press publishers Joan Baranow and David Watts with poets, Nils Peterson and Jon Sedaghatfar.
