Julie Swarstad Johnson’s Orchard Light was selected by series editors Steve Bellin-Oka and Ron Mohring as Number 20 in our Keystone Chapbook Series. Set against the backdrop of Gettysburg and other historical sites, and drawing from extensive on-site research, these poems explore the challenges of faith endured by a family torn by the American Civil War. Available now.
Effective immediately, Seven Kitchens Press will no longer represent D. Gilson’s work.
