About the Poets
Richard Harteis lives at Riverrun on Thames in Uncasville, CT. and in West Palm Beach with his dog Sydney. He is President of the WilliamMeredithFoundation.org, a tax-exempt charity whose mission is to continue the legacy of the great American spirit, William Meredith. Reunion is Harteis' fifteenth original work in a long and distinguished career. “The good news is that Richard Harteis has come through with flying colors,” James Merrill writes. Josephine Jacobsen describes the work as “exciting, perceptive, and extremely original: a brilliant act of the imagination.” And Richard Wilbur calls the poems, “sensitive notes on a life the constants of which become familiar to the reader and show what power and resonance such a poetics may beget.”
Laura Brylawski-Miller was born and raised in Milan, Italy where she was educated in Classic Humanities. She holds a degree in Health Sciences from George Washington University, and an MFA in Creative Writing from The American University. Previous poetry collections include: Luna Parks, The Snow on Lake Como, and Exile at Sarzana. She is the author of three novels: The Square at Vigevano, The Medusa’s Smile, and The Shadow of the Evening (L’Ombra della Sera.) She lives in Arlington, VA, and travels frequently between the U.S. and Italy.
