Reagler_DEAR RED AIRPLANE_web coverRounding out the month of February and back by popular demand, we’re proud to release the new edition of Robin Reagler’s Dear Red Airplane, which originally appeared in 2011 as part of our Summer Kitchen Series. That edition sold out practically overnight, and it’s our joy to make this fresh, new edition available, featuring an introduction by Laura Mullen.

Our thanks to Laura Mullen and David Groff for nominating Robin’s and Jim’s chapbooks. 

And thank you to everyone who has kindly supported Seven Kitchens over these past ten years. It’s a journey I could barely have imagined possible when we started out with our first title back in 2007.
