A WILD SURMISE: NEW & SELECTED POEMS AND RECORDINGS (Red Hen Press)
The first Poet Laureate of Los Angeles and friend of Skylight Books, Eloise Klein Healy will be reading from her brand new collection A WILD SURMISE.
The new book by Eloise Klein Healy, A Wild Surmise: New & Selected Poems & Recordings brings together nearly four decades of work immediately recognizable for its uniquely tuned sense of craft and searching, sensuous explorations of love, feminism, freeway traffic, mythology, baseball, and the lesbian tradition in literature.
Eloise Klein Healy is the author of seven books of poetry and three spoken word recordings. She was the founding chair of the MFA in Creative Writing Program at Antioch University Los Angeles where she is Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing Emerita. Healy is the founding editor of ARKTOI BOOKS, an imprint of Red Hen Press. Her most recent collection of poems is A Wild Surmise: New & Selected Poems & Recordings. In December 2012, Healy was appointed the first poet laureate of The City of Los Angeles.
