Awake at the End
"This anthology shows just how poetry can matter—for a community, from a community and by a community. Holmes, Weiss and Weems describe the synergy between artist and populace as they give their perspectives from "the greenest, leafiest streets" of the Heights to "the real picture, the cold gray one...where winter has us by the icicles,” from bustle of Coventry to the lawns of Oakwood, from the Lee Road Library to Cain Park, they have their ears to the streets and pens to the pulse of this diverse neighborhood that is a microcosm of Cleveland."—Ray McNiece, author of Our Way of Life

A River Remains, Poems by Larry Smith
252 pages $20 A WordTech Selection
Larry Smith’s A River Remains embodies the waterway of its title: in these poems the world is at once evanescent and permanent, always changing, yet always there. A collection of large scope built mostly from brief lyrics, narratives and meditations, it stands as the most compelling work from an already distinguished career.
"A River Remains is Larry Smith's most ambitious book, and his most rewarding; I suspect readers will develop loyalties to particular sections of the book and return to the poems in those sections again and again. Those new to Smith's work will discover the talent, skill, and insight of one of the wise elders of Ohio's poetic tribe, and those who know, and have known, Smith's work will recognize this for wat it is--his finest book yet." Robert Miltner, Ohioana Quarterly (January 2007)
