AMALIO MADUENO & PAUL E. NELSON
AA month rich in poetry contains this reading by two poets with deep roots in their respective literary communities, from their years of teaching, curating and documenting fellow poets, and their own work as artists. Paul Nelson, well known to many hereabouts as founder of Global Voices Radio and a co-founder of the Northwest Spoken Verses Lab, reads from his much-awaited book-length poem on the history of Auburn, A Time Before Slaughter (Apprentice House). Joining him this evening is visiting poet Amalio Madueño, who lives and writes in the Rio Arriba area, near Taos, New Mexico. A past president of the Tao Poetry Circus and the author of several chapbooks and collections, she will read from recent work, some of which is included in Lost in the Chamiso (Wild Embers Press), while more will be in the forthcoming collection, Bosque Stream (coming in fall 2010).
