Celebrate National Poetry Month with LTCC's Writers' Series! Join us for an evening with poets Jan Beatty and Gayle Brandeis on Tuesday, April 17 at 8pm in the Roberta Mason Library. This free event is open to the public, and books by both writers will be available for sale.

Beatty’s fifth book, Jackknife: New and Selected Poems, was published in January 2017 by the University of Pittsburgh Press. Her last book, The Switching/Yard, was named by Library Journal as one of ...30 New Books That Will Help You Rediscover Poetry. The Huffington Post named Beatty one of 10 women writers for “required reading.” Her books include Red SugarBoneshaker, and Mad River, winner of the Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize. She directs the creative writing program at Carlow University, where she runs the Madwomen in the Attic writing workshops and is Interim Director of the MFA program.

Gayle Brandeis is the author of the memoir The Art of Misdiagnosis: Surviving My Mother's Suicide, The Selfless Bliss of the Body (Poems), Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write, and the novels My Life with the Lincolns, Delta Girls, Self Storage, and The Book of Dead Birds, which won the Bellwether Prize of Fiction of Social Engagement. She teaches at Sierra Nevada College and Antioch University Los Angeles.
