In her con­sis­tent abil­ity to write a per­fect line of po­etry—and the river rose thirty-three feet above the high­way and took what it wanted, and it wanted nearly ev­ery­thing, and left just the side­walks—gil­lian We­gener up­sets the idea we’re all in this to­gether. Since the turn of the cen­tury, she has won the Dorothy Sar­gent Rosen­berg Po­etry Prize (twice), the Zocalo Pub­lic Square Prize for Po­etry of Place, and other awards. A ju­nior-high teacher, she has served as the poet lau­re­ate for Modesto, and pub­lished two other books.
