What a way to celebrate National Poetry Month, as well as the birthday (and death day) of the Bard himself (that’s Mr. William Shakespeare for those maybe not in the know)! Yes, Flowstone Press, an imprint of Left Fork Books, is pleased to announce our next book, available today: a collection from the irrepressible Judith Arcana.
Announcements from the Planetarium examines aging and changing, moving and memory and more. As Naomi Shihab Nye writes, “Could there ever be a collection more endearing? Great wit, music, and pacing. Vivid passionate hungers, all stitched through the nubby fabric of aging with gorgeous shining threads. We can wrap ourselves right up in these poems for courage and verve. ”
Oh! And if you’re in the Portland, Oregon area, please save this date and place: June 7 at Broadway Books. We’ll be having something of a book release, featuring Judith of course but there’s a good chance that along for the ride will be Flowstone Press editor-in-chief Michael Spring and Left Fork Books publisher Ryan Forsythe (hey, that’s me!). Please join us for a fun night of poetry and fun (and poets).
