I'll also be dropping by the table for The Backwaters Press at the AWP Bookfair -- the press has just published Eating the Pure Light: Homage to Thomas McGrath, a poetry anthology edited by John Bradley -- the anthology includes a poem of mine. The book doesn't show in the publisher's website yet -- it just came out this past week -- as soon as it shows in the website, I'll post a direct link to the publisher's webpage for the book. The above link is to the publisher's main page.
I've written previously in the blog about Tom McGrath, here, here, and here.
