Chernoff reads widely from Leap Year Day: New and Selected Poems (1990). In addition to poems and prose poems published over several decades, she reads work that would later be published in World: Poems 1991-2001. She closes the reading with a short story from Signs of Devotion and an excerpt from her then-unpublished novel American Heaven.
