The Regulator Bookshop welcomes poet Sally Bliumis-Dunn, author of the new poetry, “Echolocation,” in conversation with Durham poet and playwright, Howard Craft.
“As a series, the poems in Echolocation swing back and forth from the natural world keenly observed--rain, birds, sunflowers, even a clam-- to the contortions of the human heart, mostly caused by hurt and loss. And isn't that where the best poetry resides, between the thing and the emotion, the swan and the grief?” --Billy Collins, Poet Laureate of the United States (2001-2003).
Sally Bliumis-Dunn is the author of Echolocation (MadHat Press, 2018), Second Skin (Wind Publications, 2010) and Talking Underwater (Wind Publications, 2007). She teaches at Manhattanville College and lives in Armonk, New York.
Howard L. Craft is a poet, playwright, and arts educator. Craft teaches creative writing in schools, including the Duke Center for Documentary Studies, and through various arts councils and organizations. Craft is currently the Piller Professor of the Practice for the Writing for the Stage and Screen program at UNC-Chapel Hill.
