Look at the beautiful broadside sent to me by one of my favorite CCP poets, Alison C. Rollins! A sweet surprise on a day I was feeling very low. I can not recommend her book, Library of Small Catastrophes, highly enough. I spotted the manuscript in our submittable queue a couple of years ago and immediately read it through twice, something I've never done before or since. It is not my job to read manuscripts, but I get the opportunity to poke around from time to time. Usually my other tasks pull me quickly away. Not with this one.
The editor rather jokingly calls this book my first acquisition, though I know that whoever would have come across the ms first would have advocated for it just as hard as I did. I find it nothing short of brilliant.
Poets and librarians and poet-librarians. My kind of people. Thank you, Alison!
