Paul Lewis, The Citizen Poets of Boston

Welcome to Boston in the early years of the republic. Prepare to journey by stagecoach with a young man moving to the bustling city; stop by a tavern for food, drink, and conversation; eavesdrop on clerks and customers in a dry-goods shop; get stuck in what might have been Boston's first traffic jam; and enjoy arch comments about spouses, doctors, lawyers, politicians, and poets.

Kevin Hogan, My Riastrad, and Emily Axelrod, Passerby

My Ríastrad, Kevin Hogan's first collection of poetry, is a riveting autobiography told in the poet's unmistakable Boston-Irish voice.

In Passerby, her first book of poems, Emily H. Axelrod sees clearly the grime, the grief and danger of the world around her, but her vision is essentially a redemptive, celebratory one. Her poems are informed by moments of reunion and by memories of childhood: her cheek against a horse’s warm neck; racing to a waterfall, her body “young and lithe / as flexible as the silver birches…”
