Forthcoming

Several of my friends are coming out with new books this fall:

Kerry Langan, a dear friend from Oberlin, is publishing her first collection of short stories, Only Beautiful and Other Stories (Wising Up Press).

Obie Holmen, a new friend from Northfield, is coming out with his novel A Wretched Man: A Novel of Paul the Apostle (Mill City Press).

Shannon Tassava has an essay in P.S. What I Didn't Say: Unsent Letters to Our Female Friends (Seal Press).

Finally, I will be participating in two readings from the book Beyond Forgetting: Poetry and Prose About Alzheimer's Disease (Kent State University Press) in Northfield on October 16. The first reading will be at 4:00 pm in the Viking Theater at St. Olaf; the second will be at 7:30 pm at the Northfield Retirement Community. Also participating will be the book's editor, poet Holly Hughes (a St. Olaf alumna) and Minneapolis poet Ethna McKiernan. Stay tuned for more details.
