About the Books:
Patricia Clark's poems immerse the reader in the living world through the quality of her attention and appreciation. Clark uses memory to illuminate the past and to detail significant scenes in her life. Her work is lyrical, accessible, and rich with imagery of nature, travel, and the sensory world.

Caitlin Cowan's first book expresses the desire to be beautiful and to create beauty. These poems are a collage of traditions from a past that women are continually attempting to escape. Her work is a powerful celebration of feminine resilience.
