Poets House Showcase

This year two of Aqueduct's recent poetry titles, Jean LeBlanc's A Field Guide to the Spirits and Rose Lemberg's Marginalia to Stone Bird are appearing in Poet House's annual Showcase. Here's the description from the Poets House website:

The only event of its kind, the annual Poets House Showcase is a free exhibit featuring the new poetry books and poetry-related texts published in the United States in a single year from over 700 commercial, university and independent presses. Displaying volumes by individual authors, anthologies, chapbooks, biographies, critical studies, essay collections, CDs, DVDs, and more, the Poets House Showcase is a diverse and inclusive exhibition in which books from micro-presses receive the same care and attention as major publishers.

Opening on Thursday, July 14th, the 2016 Showcase is on view through Saturday, August 20, 2015. More than 3,000 items are in the 2016 exhibition.

If you live in NYC and are a poetry lover, this may well be for you.
