William Olsen reads primarily poems that would go on to be collected in Trouble Lights (2002), including "A Cat," "The Human Heart," "To A Fly," "Ruin Outlasting Sorrow," and "Black Globe." This reading was originally given with Nancy Eimers.

Sir Angus Wilson reads his early short story "What Do Hippos Eat" (1949), along with excerpts from his novels The Old Men at the Zoo (1961), No Laughing Matter (1967), and As If By Magic (1973).

Judith Barrington reads from History and Geography (1989) along with poems that would go on to be collected in Horses and the Human Soul (2004) and several that remain uncollected. The poems she selects for this reading center on place, landscape, memory, and Lesbian identity; horses recur throughout.
