Yesterday, I arrived home from work to a wonderful surprise: In the mail was Kay McKenzie Cooke’s book, Made for Weather! It’s beautiful. Hardbound, with a lovely little bookmark as part of the design. It was an international book exchange; she has a copy of Underlife and I have a copy of her latest title, all the way from New Zealand. Very cool! Can’t wait to read it.
Also arriving in the mail this week was Jessie Carty’s debut collection Paper House. Woo hoo! For those who don’t know, Jessie runs Shape of a Box, YouTube’s first literary magazine—which received a nice little write-up in the current issue of Poets & Writers. Congrats Jessie!
Have you signed up for my book giveaway? It’s free and open to all. Special thanks to CavanKerry Press for the donation of books.
Tonight, I’m going to Cornerstone Books in Salem to hear poets Tim Gager and Gloria Mindock read their work as part of the Thursday Theatre of Words and Music series. Hope to see you there!
