Award-winning Poet Sarah Strong’s new book, The Mouth of Earth (University of Nevada, 2020), explores ecological themes.
CTLit Festival Founder Jotham Burrello set his new novel, Spindle City (Blackstone Books, 2020) in 19th Century Fall River, MA, then a manufacturing powerhouse. Class, immigration, gender, environment…. It’s all in there!
We’ll close with a father/son exchanging poems across the generational divide and across ten of thousands of miles in Penultimate Human Constellation (Tolsun Books, 2018).
