David Axelrod has recently published a second collection of nonfiction, “The Eclipse I Call Father: Essays on Absence” and his eighth collection of poems, “The Open Hand.” He wrote the introduction, “My Interests Are People” for “About People: Photographs” by Gert Berliner. Axelrod directs the low residency MFA and Wilderness, Ecology, and Community program at Eastern Oregon University. He also edits “basalt: a journal of fine & literary arts” and serves on the editorial board of Lynx House Press.

Sabena Stark has published prose and poetry in a number of literary journals and in the anthology “Before There Is Nowhere to Stand,” which includes her poem “High Holy Days.” A longtime musician and composer, she wrote the song “Learning How to Fly” which was recorded by Tuck & Patti. A daughter of immigrants and a graduate of the UO School of Journalism’s Literary Nonfiction Program, she was awarded an Oregon Literary Arts Fellowship for her book in progress.

The Windfall Reading Series is presented in partnership by Eugene Public Library and Lane Literary Guild.
