Poets read their work at The Other Voice

By
From page A8 | January 09, 2014 |

Davis poet Rob Twiss and Placerville poet Taylor Graham will be featured at The Other Voice’s monthly gathering, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road.

Refreshments and an open mic will follow their presentations, so all are welcome to bring along a poem to share.

Taylor Graham is a volunteer search-and-rescue dog handler in El Dorado County. She and her husband, Hatch (also a search-and-rescue dog handler), live on five acres outside Placerville with their two dogs, a new black kitten and six untrainable sheep. No longer on search callout, Taylor and Hatch still train their dogs weekly because German shepherds don’t understand retirement.

Her poems appear widely in print and online. She’s included in the anthologies “Villanelles” (Everyman’s Library) and “California Poetry: From the Gold Rush to the Present” (Santa Clara University). Her book “The Downstairs Dance Floor” was awarded the Robert Phillips Poetry Chapbook Prize. Her latest book is “What the Wind Says” (Lummox Press) and features poems about living and working with her canine search partners over the past 40 years.

Twiss is a furniture maker in the tradition of fine woodworking, a retired professor of geology at UC Davis and an occasional poet. His list of publications includes nothing in the realm of poetry since contributions in 1960 to his high school literary magazine The Blue and the Gray.

He lives in Davis with his wife Helen, an accomplished pianist and music teacher, and their dog Pippa.
