This spring has brought in a big gust of new poetry books by state authors. I'll be featuring them one by one on my ncpoetlaureate.blogspot.com site, so drop by and see what's blooming in the poetry garden. Authors will include Pat Riviere-Seel, Joyce Foster ( of Cashiers), Joseph Bathani, and many others. I'll also be featuring the new anthology of work over the decades from Southern Poetry Review that includes poetry by Nancy Simpson (Hayesville), Robert Morgan, etc., so WNC is well represented.
Thanks for mentioning Joseph Bathanti. We're launching his book, Land of Amnesia, next Wed, April 1, at a Press 53 party to kick off National Poetry Month. I'll be sending you a copy when it arrives on Monday.
