New poetry collection “Your Father on the Train of Ghosts” was developed when a torrential cloudburst of collaborative ideas conveyed in emails between G.C. Waldrep and John Gallaher maintained intensity until it was almost time for someone to build an ark. Publisher’s Weekly likened the result to early John Ashberry, what with all the “estranged speakers, fluid situations and shifting pronouns.” The generous volume represents the fourth collection from Waldrep, who’s a professor at Bucknell. Gallaher is also an academic (at Northwestern Missouri) as well as an active blogger. The poets’ joint appearance at 21c Museum is part of a monthly reading series co-sponsored by Sarabande Books. —T.E. Lyons
