Forthcoming: Rickel, Reagler, Elledge

Just wanted to share the word about three titles we’ll be bringing out this winter: Musick’s Hand-maid, a sonnet crown/ elegy by Boyer Rickel; Dear Red Airplane, a reprint of Robin Reagler’s 2011 Summer Kitchen title, forthcoming as #8 in our ReBound Series; and Nothing Nice, by Jim Elledge, originally published in 1987 by Windfall Prophets Press and forthcoming as #9 in our ReBound Series. 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.

Louis McKee Memorial Event: Sunday, March 18

(Originally posted by Eileen D’Angelo)
 
A great light has gone out of the Philadelphia literary community, and for many of us who loved Philadelphia teacher and poet Louis McKee. There will be a celebration of his remarkable life on Sunday, March 18th at 1 pm at the Mansion Parlor and Gallery of Media Borough Hall, 301 North Jackson Street, Media, PA 19063.  Please join us that day.

Remembrances, stories and memories will be shared by his friends including Daniel Hoffman, WD Ehrhart, Joe Farley, Harry Humes, Paul Martin, Ray Greenblatt, Thomas Devaney, Elaine Terranova, Steve Delia, Peter Krok, Dan Maguire, Lynn Levin, Barb Crooker, Richard Bank, Mel Brake, Eileen D’Angelo and many others. Everyone is invited to come and take to the podium, or rise from their seats, Quaker-style, as the spirit moves them, to share one of your favorite poems written by Lou, or tell a story, an anecdote or share a fond memory of our dear friend and Northeast Philadelphia’s native son. Please come and help us celebrate his life. Feel free to copy and forward this message. With your help, we can make it a very special day to remember him.
