A few years ago, with the help of some friends, I decided to launch a tiny publishing company—based on a growing knowledge of ebook production and some personal connections in the world of print on demand. The result was Popcorn Press.
Today, I’m happy to announce, Popcorn Press has released Empty Shoes: Poems on the Hungry and the Homeless, a collection of 151 poems donated by 80 poets, including Wisconsin’s first poet laureate and other notables, as well as a number of people having direct experience with homelessness—on both sides of that line. The collection was lovingly assembled and edited by Patrick T. Randolph, a faculty member at UW-La Crosse.
All profits from the sale of this book are dedicated to food pantries and homeless shelters in Wisconsin. Currently the book is available via the Popcorn Press Web site, but it will become listed at Amazon.com in the next few days.
