Empty Shoes, Popcorn Press‘s poetry collection to benefit the hungry and homeless, is now available on Amazon.com. Collected and edited by Patrick T. Randolph, a UW-La Crosse instructor and author of Father’s Philosophy (also from Popcorn Press), Empty Shoes contains 151 poems donated by 80 poets, including Wisconsin’s first poet laureate, Ellen Kort. Many of the poets have direct experience with homelessness, whether as social workers or having been homeless themselves. The resulting breadth, depth, and–surprisingly—joy of the collection makes for an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts.
All profits from the sale of this title are devoted to programs to help the hungry and the homeless. Watch here for more details.
