My essay “Show them Love” was published in the Red Wheelbarrow Anthology, “Spring and All.”
Sunday, June 11, at 4:00 pm at Village Books in Bellingham, there will be an official book launch.
I will read an excerpt from my essay along with other authors also published in the anthology.
I’d be honored for you to attend.
“—Still the profound changeWilliam Carlos Williams
has come upon them: rooted, they
grip down and begin to awaken.”
So ends the first poem in William Carlos Williams’ quirky, iconic Spring and All, published in 1923. One hundred years later, the Red Wheelbarrow Writers’ Spring and All anthology takes up its challenge: “Profound change” lies at the heart of each piece. Some authors write with raffish humor, some with wry nostalgia, some with elegiac undercurrents. These authors display a dazzling array of poetry and prose: art seeking to articulate insight. Across a broad canvas of expression our writers contend with life’s “Aha!” moments. That uplifting “Aha!” might take place in a train rattling across a foreign landscape, or in front of an enigmatic lilac bush, or a Midwestern summer afternoon with a baseball game wafting from the radio, even in an ordinary driveway. This anthology offers readers a sense of awakening that will spark deeper understanding, renewed wonder, refreshed reverence.
