Anne Valley-Fox reads poems at 2 pm, from her new book, How Shadows Are Bundled (University of New Mexico Press, 2009) with confreres David Meltzer and Michael Rothenberg. David & Michael, traveling by van crosscountry last fall in their "Rockpile" odyssey that took them to a dozen cities and dozens of poetry/music conclaves, hooked up with their long-lost friend Anne Valley-Fox in Santa Fe, remaking connections first formed four decades ago in old beat North Beach...

Here's what you'll read in Anne's bio if you check out her website: "Born in Paterson, New Jersey, Anne Valley-Fox was raised in Santa Monica, California and schooled at University of California at Berkeley during the Free Speech Movement. There, she began writing poetry in classrooms with Josephine Miles and visiting poet James Tate; in her senior year she was awarded the Eisner Prize in Literature. She cut her poetic teeth on the San Francisco poetry scene for several years before moving to northern New Mexico with her first-born son, Ezra. Her poetry books are Sending the Body Out, Fish Drum 15, Point of No Return and How Shadows Are Bundled. Her nonfiction books are Telling Your Story (with Sam Keen) and Outlaws and Desperados: A New Mexico Federal Writers Project Book (with Ann Lacy, co-editor).
