In celebration of Christopher Howell’s new collection of poetry, Love’s Last Number, he will be joined by his friends and fellow poets Nance Van Winckel and Albert Goldbarth to read from their latest works. The poems in Love’s Last Number are deeply concerned with the nature of time and our relationship with it. As the publisher, Milkweed Editions, says, these poems get at the core of “what we do about memory, love, grief, war, and the contradictions implicit in the human search for meaning.” Alberto Rios describes reading Love’s Last Number as an experience of being “quietly drawn into an entire book of war poems, demonstrating the abidingly cruel relationship between human beings and the inexorable. It is a circumstance so quietly and powerfully vivified time and again.” Howell’s tenth collection of poetry marks the continuation of a talented career distinguished by appearances in anthologies and journals such as Antioch Review, Colorado Review, Crazy Horse, Denver Quarterly, Field, Gettysburg Review, Harper’s, Hudson Review, Iowa Review, Northwest Review, Poetry Northwest, Southern Review, and Volt. He is the recipient of three Pushcart Prizes and two National Endowment Fellowships.

Nance Van Winckel’s most recent poetry collection, Our Foreigner, won the Pacific Coast Poetry Series Prize. She often challenges the expectations of form in her work, as she does in Ever Yrs, a novel in the form of a scrapbook, and Book of No Ledge, an encyclopaedic collection of visual poems. Van Winckel is the recipient of two NEA poetry fellowships, three Pushcart Prizes, and many other awards.

Albert Goldbarth is the author of over twenty collections of poetry and three collections of essay. He has received prestigious fellowships and awards such as the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Mark Twain Poetry Award. His newest collection, The Loves and Wars of Relative Scale, engages perspective, proximity, and the intersection of large-scale universe and individual-scale joys and tragedies. Goldbarth delivers yet another dynamic collection to the discussion.

Founded in 1998, Lost Horse Press has continually published and promoted fine contemporary literature. Lost Horse Press will sell all of the books mentioned above at the event and will host a signing after the reading.
