Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland is pleased to present another installment of Poetry Flash, this time with novelists Cheryl Klein and Terry Wolverton, on Sunday, January 31st at 3pm.

Cheryl Klein is the author of Lilac Mines, the story of an L.A. lesbian whose lover leaves her, is gay-bashed on the street, and moves to the small town of Lilac Mines in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada looking for a new life. There she confronts a hundred year-old mystery. Her first novel is The Commuters, which won the City Works Press Ben Reitman Award and was published in 2006. Klein directs the California office of Poets & Writers, Inc.

Terry Wolverton is a poet, novelist, and a feminist political activist based in Los Angeles. Her new book is the novel The Labrys Reunion, in which the alumnae of a radical women's institute of the 1970s are forced to face the legacy of their movement when one of the women's daughters is raped and murdered. Terry Wolverton's most recent book of poems is Shadow and Praise.
