I am thrilled to be able to tell you that my first full-length collection of poems A Fine Canopy has been released to the world. Please contact your favorite bookstore—or me–for details. Literati Bookstore hosted the official virtual launch on October 6, 2020 (Thank you everyone who helped make that a celebration!). Thank you Annie Martin–and everyone at Wayne State University Press–for taking in my poems. 2020 was a wild ride of a year and your confidence in my work helped me keep my seat.
This spectacular cover was designed by Katrina Noble using a painting by Nancy Mitchnick. I discovered Ocean View in a book of Nancy’s work published by MOCAD. I fell in love with the paintings she has made since moving back to Detroit after being away for many many years, and she graciously gave us permission to use one of my favorites.
I’m so glad you let me know about your new book. I’m so looking forward to reading it!! Which works better for you if I buy it from you
or the publisher?
Hello Susan! I’m happy to hear from you, and uou are kind to ask — really whatever is easiest for you. In these times especially I like to encourage ordering through your local bookstore. You could also order through Literati Bookstore or Nicola’s Books–both in my Ann Arbor neighborhood. Or through Wayne State University Press.
