"How To Feel Confident with Your Special Talents" is a collection of poems by Carol Guess and Daniela Olszewska, based on entries on the wikiHow website.

Each poem takes its title from a wikiHow page, such as "How to Ride an Icelandic Horse" and "How to Do the Cha Cha."

Guess is the author of 13 books of poetry and prose. An English professor at Western Washington University, she keeps a blog at carolguess.blogspot.com.

Guess and Kelly Magee, an assistant professor of English at WWU, have together written "With Sheep," an essay for the anthology "Among Animals: The Lives of Animals and Humans in Contemporary Short Fiction." The collection of short fiction explores the ways in which we live among, and often conflict with, animals.

They will both read from their works at 7 p.m. Friday, May 30, at Village Books, 1200 11th St.

Magee's first collection of stories, "Body Language," won the Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Short Fiction. Her second collection, "With Animal," co-written with Guess, is forthcoming in May 2015.
