Poetry around the area...


FootHills Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Emily Hayes Whittle's poetry chapbook SHADOWS and LIGHT

Poet’s Statement about Shadows and Light:

I primarily see the poems in this collection as my struggle to find faith, sanity, and light in a world often veiled in shadows and darkness. Though many of these poems were born in shadow, hopefully, as a whole, light breaks through. I find light for my path through poetry, my family, and my Celtic Christian and American Indian spiritual inheritance.

The amazingly gifted Rebecca Gonzalez will debut her well-reviewed book, Sonata for Rain, for the Lancaster Poetry Exchange on March 26 at 7:30 PM. She has graciously agreed to have this venue serve as the coming out party for her moving collection of poems. It will be spring and you owe it to the spiritual side of yourself to come and here this magical poet.

Rebecca Gonzalez’s long-awaited poetry collection gives its readers moments of reflection and contemplation that are as universal as they are delicate. These gentle poems, some juxtaposed with their original Spanish version, offer sincere pleadings (“Remind me that it is/all worth the sacrifice”) and aching (“I need you/like a breath”) that carry Sonata for Rain right into the heart.


Two-time American Poet Laureate Ted Kooser
Monday, March 31 at 8 p.m., Elizabethtown College Leffler Chapel and Performance Center.
Free tickets required for the event are available by calling 717-361-4757.
