The Voice of the Poet Series

The books in The Voice of the Poet Series are intended as introductions to the work and voice of important midwest poets. Each book includes a select number of poems chosen to span or represent the poet’s range of work. Audio recordings of the poets reading these selections were made, and then embedded into the e-book format. Each book will also include an introductory essay and bibliography.

The first four books feature the poetry of Joyce Sutphen, Robert Hedin, Edith Rylander and Floyce Alexander. Expected release date for the first title, The Grand Piano by Floyce Alexander (introduction by Christopher Howell and afterword by Bill Tremblay) is November, 2013.
