NEW RELEASE – Donald Richardson’s ReUNIONS

Cover of ReUNIONS by Donald Richardson. Cover is mostly blank, with the sketch of a man with his back slightly turned toward us. His posture is relaxed; his hands are in his pockets, his sleeves rolled up, and he appears to be reflecting on his life. A signature of the artist, Bob Callahan, is prominently figured beside the man. TEXT reads: ReUNIONS: New and Selected Poems by Donald Richardson.We are happy to announce the release of ReUNIONS, New and Selected Poems by Donald Richardson!

This new collection of poetry from Donald Richardson is quilted from decades of work, spanning from Knocking Them Dead and Night Waters to Romantic Unions, new poems from 2016 and 2017. In many ways, the poems are messages to loved ones, a scrapbook of memories and reflections, things so deeply personal yet ubiquitous to the human experience.

Portraits on the cover, beautifully rendered by artist Bob Callahan, capture the essence of reflection, and are the perfect partners to Richardson’s poems.

Honoring Baltimore Poet With Her Poetry

In honor of Baltimore poet Dyane Fancey, Baltimore Fishbowl featured an article, “Baltimore Poet Dyane Fancey Dies, Leaves Us with Perfect Poem,” discussing her poem “Multitasking.” The article wonderfully analyzes Fancey’s poem and, despite Fancey’s passing, reminds us death “is as good a reason as any not to worry, but instead simply to “Be here, / Here, now.”

Fancey’s work includes “A Religion of Skin,” published by The New Poets Series (now BrickHouse Books). For more information about Fancey, read The Baltimore Sun‘s article on the poet here.
