Entre Ríos Books, a BPNW member, has released three new poetry books this fall. Like their other books, their focus is on collaboration and the books come with audio to listen to the authors read their work.
Flowers & Sky: Two Talks by Aaron Shurin
This volume brings together two lectures and a suite of unpublished poems by one of our finest lyric and gay poets. These intimate talks use Shurin’s own work to illustrate the power and practice of image-making at the deepest level and contemplate a life made by and for art. Laura Moriarty says of the book, “Old poets thinking to write their memoirs and young ones to assert their own poetics should take notice.”
Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts by Maya Jewell Zeller & Carrie DeBacker
A full-color collaboration on the politicalization of women’s bodies. Spokane poet, Maya Jewell Zeller, and Seattle artist, Carrie DeBacker, crafted a work of anxious poetics and eco-feminism, much of it created after the election. This book includes a film response by CWU student, Rebecca Starkey, winner of the first ERB Emerging Visions Filmmaker Award, given to women filmmakers in Washington State secondary or college programs.
Mary’s Dust by Melinda Mueller with music by Lori Goldston
The long-awaited return by one of Seattle’s most intriguing writers, Mary’s Dust collects and reimagines the stories of Marys throughout history. From the Annunciation to Mary Wollstonecraft, from Typhoid Mary to September 11, 2001, this staggeringly intense and honed work is her first full- length collection since the ALA and Washington Book Award winning, What the Ice Gets. It ships with a digital download of a new cello suite by celebrated Seattle cellist, Lori Goldston.
