The Rivers Speak: Poetry/Art Chapbook

front & Back coversAs I open the boxes of books, they peer out fresh like scrubbed faces of small children; am momentarily  overcome  by  emotions of this journey.
My initial excitement, gathering all 30 poets and artists represented here, the collaboration with my co-editor Kathy as we  worked through the at times painful details of the project, the new learning which as well comes with-oh if I would have known that it would be different-and to the place I am in now …go forth and find happy homes.
I am pleased with this act of bringing beauty forward into our community, but most of all,  pleased with the  many forms of creativity represented in this book.
Our expressions are as varied as our river systems themselves and yet interlaced as are the lines in a net-pulled together with honesty, passion, sensitivity and wisdom. They have heart for this place we call home and for the rivers that give us life.
from the preface

The official  launch is Friday November 22nd at the Terrace Art Gallery
from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Many of the poets will be there to read.

I hope you will
