Nothing Important
Happened Today
Poems by
Claudia Serea

"Readers are stepping into wry, lovely, and sometimes
even tragic territory when they embark upon Claudia
Serea’s new poetry collection."      Sharon Mesmer

From the streets of Bucharest during the bloody fall
of the Ceausescu regime through a bicycle ride in
Rutherford, New Jersey, the author shares her life on
the border of two lands, two languages, two cultures.
Aleph, broken
poems from my diaspora
Judith Kerman

"Questions about what is holy and what is human and
how cultural touchstones can help us make connections
across the boundaries that separate us from our deepest
selves are the subject that Kerman returns to again and
again, often with wonder, sometimes with regret, but
always with the confidence of a master poet."
                         Eleanor Lerman

A secular Jew's exploration of her cultural and religious
heritage illumines our common human search for
identity and rootedness.
ruina montium
A poetry chapbook by
Jeremy Paden

"Both tender and clear-eyed, these poems are strong
enough to lift each one of us from the darkness."
                               Ada Limón

The plight of "Los 33," the Chilean miners rescued after
sixty-nine days underground in the 2010 disaster, is
rendered here in exquisite verse that both pays tribute to
the individual miners and offers a meditation on our
relationship with our fragile world.
Two Men
Rowing Madly
Toward Infinity
Poetry by
William Reichard

"In a book filled with doubles, doppelgangers, ghosts and
echoes, everything that was is always happening now (or
about to happen): 'the atoms of all that’s / been / all that /
is, / all that  / will be / merge in the darkness.'  
Two Men
is the testimony of a man who, from the very
start, admits, 'I know things change' and still goes on to
describe the people and places he’s loved in such
moving detail that we love them too."
                                     Joyce Stuphen
After the Storm
Poetry by
Thomas Zemsky

"The pleasures these poems yield linger long."
                           Frederick Smock
A lifetime of observation and writing poetry served up
in language that is delightfully quirky and often
subversively wry.
Iris In
Poetry by
Kryssa Schemmerling

"Iris In is an exciting book, multi-layered and savvy. It
deserves a large and enthusiastic audience."
                                      Colette Inez
Images from classic films mingle mix with impressions
of the author's California childhood in this impressive
debut collection.
Poems by
Robert Eastwood

"This book is a descriptive tour-de-force."
                            Jeanne Wagner
Combining historical past with personal past and
bridging Civil War to Cold War into the present in a
heady mix of imagery and memory.
In Between the Charges
for Ethel Rosenberg
A poetry chapbook by
Myles Gordon

"Myles Gordon is one of the outstanding poets of his
            Kathleen Spivack
This sonnet sequence imagines the memories and
thoughts of Ethel Rosenberg at the moment of her
execution.  A timely plea for all people of conscience
in a binary world of "with us or against us."
The River Remembers
A Verse Cycle of Frankfort, Kentucky by
Larry W. Moore
The Kentucky River is the keeper of community memory
in this imaginative narrative of the history and lore of
Kentucky's capital city.
As Rain Turns to Snow
and Other Stories
Robert Morgan
"Robert Morgan’s lyric mountain language is equal to
the epic sweep of history, to the grandeur of the land
                                           —Lee Smith

A new collection of short stories by one of the masters
of Appalachian literature.
