Shelly Hall’s “Alum” at the Printer!

I’m happy to report that the files for Alum are at the printer. Alum is my friend Shelly Hall’s third collection of poetry, compiled and polished during her final year of life. Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009, Shelly knew that the odds of survival were low. She devoted herself to finishing this collection, trusting me and Mary Ann Mitchell (the third member of Poetryst) to bring it to publication. As you can see below, Popcorn Press’s graphic designer (my daughter Kate) did a wonderful job with the cover. (Click the image for a larger version.)
