The third installment of the monthly summer series Bay Area Poetry Marathon is probably the hottest in a succession of great lineups this year. Curated by poet Donna de la Perrière, it features a wide range of poetic and performance styles. Gillian Conoley just released a fantastic book with Omnidawn, Peace, and has translated a collection of three books by the French poet Henri Michaux, previously unavailable in English, which comes out with City Lights next month. Nora Toomey likes to combine audio and video elements to her readings, which are consistently swoon-worthy and will likely complement Owen Hill’s short satirical poems quite well; he has a new book called A Walk Among the Bogus. Norma Cole and Kevin Killian are legends because they do a variety of things extremely well, and all with panache. Joining them are Megan Breiseth, Trevor Calvert, Natalie Catasus, and Andrew Joron, a favored experimental writer ’round these parts.
