Now Available: A Concert of Rivers by Marcus Whalbring

Filled with clever, tender, insightful poems, Marcus Whalbring writes through the lens of family relationships–as a father, as a son, as a husband, and is rooted in the everyday, yet he also reflects on the larger issues. Love and death, presence and abandonment, the “why are we here” questions of children all work together alongside skillful use of syntax and breath to create a memorable, lovely book that will remind readers of a quiet afternoon at home.

Now Available: Burn Down Your House by Angelique Zobitz

We are thrilled to share this innovative love story with you!

Burn Down Your House is a series of white-out poetry leveraging Madeleine L’Engle’s Two-Part Invention: the Story of a Marriage, which specifically explores L’Engle’s marriage to Hugh Franklin, a life inevitably marked by love and death. This white-out chapbook creates a new thing, yet is still a reflection of love and of marriage in the midst of life and death. Two individuals joined in marriage are nothing but texts of the past, creating something new and different from something old.
