contact for booking requests

Brandi HOMAN is the author of Hard Reds (Shearsman Books 2008) and Two Kinds of Arson, a chapbook from dancing girl press. She earned her MFA in Poetry from Columbia College Chicago and her MA in English from the University of Illinois at Chicaqo. She is the editor in chief of Switchback Books.

Katy LEDERER is the author of the poetry collections, Winter Sex (Verse Press, 2002) and The Heaven-Sent Leaf (BOA Editions, 2008) as well as the memoir Poker Face: A Girlhood Among Gamblers (Crown, 2003), which Publishers Weekly included on its list of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2003 and Esquire Magazine named one of its eight Best Books of the Year 2003. In The Heaven-Sent Leaf, Katy Lederer draws on her experience as both acclaimed younger poet and "brainworker" at a hedge fund in midtown Manhattan to produce an uncannily prescient work of high lyric. Though on its surface The Heaven-Sent Leaf addresses that most taboo of subjects—money—what it ultimately confronts is what it means to be, as Wallace Stevens put it, "finally human."
