The Kingdom of Roly-Polys, Pedestrian Poets Series Vol. 2
Poems and a few short prose pieces by Colleen McKee. This is the second title in our Pedestrian Poets series, a collection of short books by Bay Area authors.
Colleen McKee grew up in the wild hills of rural Missouri obsessed with cicadas, crickets, and tadpoles. Now she lives in Oakland, California with seven snails who probably do not consider themselves her pets. She is the author of three previous collections of poetry, memoir, and fiction: My Hot Little Tomato; A Partial List of Things I Have Done for Money; and Nine Kinds of Wrong. She is also co-editor of an anthology from the perspective of patients: Are We Feeling Better Yet? Women Speak About Health Care in America.

Farrago Soup, Selected Poems by Doug Draime
A retrospective of the poems of Doug Draime. Born and raised in Vincennes, Indiana, Doug Draime’s first published works appeared in the 1960’s. His poems, short stories and plays continue to be published in a wide range of magazines, newspapers, collections, broadsides and on-line journals. Draime began writing as a teenager in Vincennes, then moved to Chicago where he studied philosophy and creative writing at Chicago University, and theater at the Fine Arts Academy. A wartime draftee, he served for two years in the US army infantry during the Vietnam War, becoming active in the anti-war movement when he moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 1967 after his discharge. He studied film and anthropology at Los Angeles City College on the G.I. Bill, and briefly pursued a career as an actor before becoming an integral part of the Los Angeles literary community. In 1981 he re-located to Ashland, Oregon, working for the Ashland Unified School District as a Special Education Assistant until his retirement in 2005. He was a recipient of two PEN grants, in 1987 and 1991. While living in Oregon he met and married Carol Draime, and the two of them lived together in Ashland until his death in 2015.
