My dear sweet cousin, who is my daughter's age, has written a book of poetry and it is soon to be published. We are all so proud of Lisa and her accomplishments. Her list is quite long for a young woman her age...Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet's book Tulips, Water, Ash was selected for the 2009 Morse Prize and will be published in October by University Press of New England. You can read some of her poems here, or e-mail her here. Lisa sent an email today saying that "Tulips, Water, Ash will be available in stores and online in early September. If you'd like a copy, you can pre-order today at your favorite independent bookstore, or online at the usual suspects: - IndieBound (order from your local store, online!) - Amazon - Powell's - B&N She said: "I'll also be doing some readings soon - at Madrone Lounge with the amazing 13 Ways poetry group on September 20, at San Francisco's Litquake festival on October 10, and at the fabulous Tulips, Water, Ash release party at Bird & Beckett Books on October 25. Details to follow. Lisa"
I thought her bookcover very appropriate for our Blooming Tuesday...
These flowers and figs are from my garden taken this week.
Way to go!!! **************
