Join us to celebrate new collections from Jeff Friedman and Phyllis Katz!
Jeff Friedman's eighth collection of poetry, The Marksman, blends surrealism, dark comedy, fable, hyperbole, history, and reinvented myth to explore the question of what it means to live in our troubled times.
Friedman's poems, mini-stories, and translations have appeared in American Poetry Review, Poetry, New England Review, Poetry International, and the New Republic, among other places. He has taught at Keene State College for many years and lives in New Hampshire.
Ghost Orchids is Phyllis Beck Katz's fourth book of poetry. Jane Roy Brown writes "Tracing an arc between fear and acceptance that bridges one of life’s most difficult passages, these poems illuminate the path ahead for all of us."
Katz's award-winning poems have been published in various publications including The Salon, Bloodroot Literary Magazine, and Oberon. She has a PhD in Classics from Columbia University, and has taught Classics, Women's and Gender Studies, and Ancient and Modern poetry in the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies at Dartmouth College.

Jeff Friedman's eighth collection of poetry, The Marksman, blends surrealism, dark comedy, fable, hyperbole, history, and reinvented myth to explore the question of what it means to survive and live in our troubled times. This is a book of migrations and transformations, of wrenching displacement and redemption.
Poetry. Phyllis Katz's poems are crucial to us for their intrinsic beauty, for their attention to eloquent detail, and for their capacity to stir our souls. Writing after the loss of her longtime spouse, she knows how--without self-pity or--glorification--to evoke our sorrow, but both in her person and in her poems, she also epitomizes a noble resilience.
