  • Poet Cathleen Calbert.
This Sunday at Diesel in Oakland, Andrena Zawinski and Cathleen Calbert will each read from their new collections of poetry. Zawinsky’s latest, Landings, is described by fellow poet Rebecca Foust as “poignant, plainspoken poems [that] span lifetimes and continents.” Zawinski’s previous collections, Something About and Travelling in Reflected Light, have won a PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award and the Kenneth Patchen competition respectively. Cathleen Calbert’s newest book, The Afflicted Girls, is a winner of the Vernice Quebodeaux “Pathways” Prize for Women. Poet Thomas Lux describes Calbert (pictured) as a poet “who has learned her trade, and her music is sure and original.” Calbert has previously published the collections Lessons in Space, Bad Judgement, and Sleeping with a Famous Poet. Her work has appeared in The New Republic, The New York Times and she has been honored by the Nation Discovery Award, a Pushcart Prize, and the Gordon Barber Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America.

Sunday June 25, 3pm, free, 5433 College Ave, DieselBookstore.com.
