My New Poetry Chapbook Inspired by Amelia Earhart

Tonight, I launched my first poetry chapbook in more than six years at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge.

The chapbook is titled Woman in the Sky: Poems Inspired by Amelia Earhart and The Journey of Flight.

Of course, the biopic Amelia starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere comes out on Friday. But the collection has nothing to do with the movie. I began writing these poems early in 2008 after listening to a CD by an obscure British folk group called Plainsong whose sole album in 1972 was titled In Search of Amelia Earhart.

If you are interested in getting a copy please get in touch with me and I'll be happy to arrange something with you. I am asking only $3.
