Not All Are Weeping is in my hands
We’re Having a Zoom Launch Party, and You’re Invited
On Sunday, June 4, from 2-3ish PM (EDT), I will celebrate the publication of my first chapbook, Not All Are Weeping, with a virtual book launch party. I will talk a little about my poetry journey and read some poems. Some friends will speak and read poems. (Sadly, I can’t bake cupcakes for you on Zoom. Please provide your own exciting and celebratory refreshments) Register now by clicking the link below.
Some of you may know my friend, Argy Nestor. You can look forward to hearing from her at the book launch. Argy is an educator, communicator, and artist. She will be interviewing me and keeping up with questions from the chat room. We have known each for years since our children were very young and she can tell good stories. You might want to ask her about our next project: a collaboration on a book of poetry and images.

Many of you may be asking, “What is a chapbook?” In the world of poetry publishing, a chapbook is a small, focused collection of poems, usually 30-40 pages. It is not merely a collection of poems but a project with at least some coherence in the topic. It is not a collection of all the poems written in the past two years, for example, but a selection of poems that go together in some way. My poems are organized around issues of aging, loss, and grief as well as the painful reckonings we must make with ourselves at times. There are also some fantastical adventures with an orchestra full of trees and a slightly skewed winter sleigh ride. I am so grateful for all of your support and I hope you enjoy the book.
