Come to the launch party and reading for my poetry collection, Back East! The party starts at 7:00 pm on Friday, November 1 at Longfellow’s Bookstore at One Monument Square in Portland, Maine.
The book is available from the Moon Pie Press website and at Longfellow Books in Portland, Maine, and other independent bookstores.
Baron Wormser, the contest judge, said this about the collection: “This is the real thing–intelligence and feeling working together in genuine concert.”
Betsy Sholl says “Back East includes a chorus of voices, each making its own hard reckoning on the cliff edge of character and fate, loss and second chance…. Among the great pleasures in this book are its fresh perceptions, its moral seriousness, and its formal beauty.”
The cover is a wonderful painting by Lisa Delaney of Cranberry Peak, part of the Bigelow Range in Maine.
