Sarah Giragosian is co-editor with Virginia Konchan of Marbles on the Floor: How to Assemble a Book of Poems (2023), an anthology of interconnected essays that explore the art and technique of poetry manuscript assembly. She is the author of the poetry collections Queer Fish (2017), winner of the American Poetry Journal Book Prize, and The Death Spiral (2020). A Ph.D. graduate of the UAlbany English Department, she teaches in the Writing and Critical Inquiry Program and the English Department.

David Goldsmith, geologist and Director of the UAlbany Honors College, is the author of On Solid Ground: Why the Earth Isn’t as Controversial as You May Think (2023), a book that illustrates what geologists know about the earth by telling the stories of the people who made major geological discoveries, while addressing the arguments of doubters and nay-sayers. Goldsmith joined the UAlbany community in 2022, after 25 years of teaching experience in geology, paleontology, and the history of science.
