There are two new books of poetry that might interest you.
Solace in So Many Words contributor and Evanston poet Susan Spaeth Cherry has a new book–Sackcloth and Silk: New and Selected Poems. She will be reading from this collection Thursday, January 11 at 7 pm at the Community Meeting Room of Evanston Public Library.
Copies of Sackcloth and Silk will be available to purchase with both Susan Cherry and Scurfpea Publishing donating half their proceeds to Doctors Without Borders.
Susan Spaeth Cherry began her writing career as a journalist. Her award-winning poetry has been published in anthologies, literary magazines, and on poetry web sites. She is the author of five poetry collections (I Am the Pool’s Perimeter; Reflecting Pool; Breaking Into the Safe of Life; Sonata in the Key of Being; and Hole to Whole). She often sets her poetry to choral and instrumental music that she composes herself. Congrats Susan!
Congrats are also extended to Arlyn Miller whose press Poetic License just came out with its latest publication: In Plein Air.
It’s a collection of fifty-two poems in response to the natural world printed in an individually numbered, limited edition of two hundred and twenty books. Each of the forty-three poets spent time outdoors while creating these poems, so that the collection is not only about the outdoors, but also of the outdoors.
For more information, check out Poetic License site where you can order the book and learn about upcoming events. Previous collections include: A Light Breakfast: Poems to Start Your Day and A Midnight Snack: Poems for Late Night Reading.
Write on. Read on.
Peace, love, and solace
