A trio of readings by Jacob Ziskind Visiting Poet-in-Residence Elizabeth Bradfield, poet and director of creative writing at Brandeis Olga Broumas, and fiction writer and associate director of creative writing at Brandeis Stephen McCauley.

Elizabeth Bradfield, who received the Audre Lorde award in 2008 for her volume Interpretive Work and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award the same year, has recently published "Approaching Ice" (Persea Books, 2010).

Olga Broumas's "Beginning with O" was selected by Stanley Kunitz for the Yale Younger Poets Series in 1977.  In 1999, she published selections from her many books as "Rave: Poems, 1975-1999," followed by a 2000 CD recording of readings, "Olga Broumas: A Listener's Companion" (both available from Copper Canyon Press). 

Stephen McCauley is author of six novels, including "The Object of My Affection" (1987) and "Insignificant Others" (2010).
