Poets Penelope Scambly Schott and Andrea Hollander will be here to read from newly published books.

Penelope Scambly Schott’s new book is
Lillie was a goddess Lillie was a whore and is published by Mayapple Press of Woodstock, New York. It’s a poetic look at the world’s “oldest profession” – prostitution. By turns funny, wise, historical, contemporary, sacred and profane, this book is a thoughtful consideration of the subject by a poet with an unflinching imagination. Ms. Schott’s previous books include several chapbooks and collections. She is the recipient of an Oregon Book Award for Poetry. She is a resident of Portland and Dufur, Oregon.

Andrea Hollander’s new book is
Landscape with Female Figure: New and Collected Poems, 1981 - 2012, published by Autumn House Press of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is the author of three previous chapbooks and three full-length poetry collections. She has won many honors for her poetry and memoir work, including two NEA fellowships, a D.H. Lawrence Fellowship and a Pushcart Prize. She spent twenty-two years as Writer-in-Residence at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas and now lives in Portland.
