SKU: 001 Category:


The Ruth Stone House Reader features chapbook-length collections of poetry from Rachel Eliza Griffiths, Jennif(f)er Tamayo, Cathy Linh Che, and Carolina Ebeid. As a yearly anthology, the Reader looks to Ruth Stone’s legacy of supporting her community and offers each author a residency in Vermont. Taking on a range of voices, styles and subjects, the collection highlights the boldness and complexity of poetry in the early 21st century. This is writing that embraces those who offer care and confronts those who don’t. This is writing that spans narrative meditation, intertextual performance, and lyrical bravado. This is poetry that will challenge and engross you.
