The Writers
Praised by the NY Times for a “tantalizing sense of indirection,” Thaisa Frank’s debut novel, Heidegger’s Glasses, is written “in the spare minimalist style that won admiration for her short story collections” (Booklist).  Among her collections are A Brief History Of Camouflage and Sleeping In Velvet. A PEN Award winner and Pushcart nominee, she is also the co- author of Finding Your Writer’s Voice, which is used in MFA programs. Foreign rights to Heidegger’s Glasses were sold to ten countries before publication and the novel has gone into a second printing after a November release date.
 
Alexandra Teague’s first book of poetry, Mortal Geography, won the Lexi Rudnitsky Prize and was published by Persea Books in 2010. Her poetry has appeared in Best American Poetry 2009, Best New Poets 2008, and journals including The Missouri Review and New England Review. She was a 2006-2008 Stegner Fellow at Stanford and received a 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. She usually lives in Oakland, CA.
 
Noriko Nakada is the author of Through Eyes Like Mine, the story of her early childhood years growing up in rural Oregon. She completed her MFA at Antioch University Los Angeles in 2005 and continues to write, blog, tweet and facebook about life, food, education and sports.  She teaches English, history and advises the school newspaper at LAUSD’s Emerson Middle School where she also helped found the Emerson Sports Academy.  She lives with her man and dog in Los Angeles, California and is represented by Judy Heiblum at Sterling Lord Literistic.
