Fire, Rain, Darkness - 3 Poets from Sixteen Rivers Press

Camille Norton, Barbara Swift Brauer and Maya Khosla read from their new books

Three new Sixteen Rivers Press poets are pleased to present their works at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts on Saturday April 13.

Camille Norton, Barbara Swift Brauer and Maya Khosla will read works, sign their books and take questions from the audience.

Experience the new poets of Sixteen Rivers Press a shared-work, nonprofit poetry collective dedicated to providing an alternative publishing avenue for Northern California poets. Founded in 1999 by seven writers, the press is named for the sixteen rivers that flow into the San Francisco Bay. Since 2001, we have produced thirty-eight outstanding books of poetry, sharing our commitment to excellence with the poetry world.

About the Poets

Barbara Swift Brauer’s second poetry collection, Rain, Like a Thief, explores the identity of self through time, relationship, and the natural world. She is the author of At Ease in the Borrowed World (Sixteen Rivers Press, 2013) and, with Jackie Kirk, Witness: The Artist’s Vision in The Face of AIDS (Pomegranate Artbooks, 1996).

Camille Norton’s first book of poems, Corruption, was a 2004 National Poetry Series winner, published by Harper Perennial in 2005. In A Folio for the Dark, Camille asks us to contemplate the power of reading and writing in an open-source universe in which books as physical objects are disappearing.

Poet Laureate of Sonoma County (2018-2020) Maya Khosla has written Keel Bone (winner, 2003 Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize) and Heart of the Tearing. In All the Fires of Wind and Light, Maya invites readers to explore the wild –  from the Sierra Nevada and Cascades Mountains to the Bay of Bengal.
