joanne kyger collected poems

We are very happy to announce the publication of Joanne Kyger's Collected (so far) Poems.
We are also very happy that they are being published here in Maine, by the National Poetry Foundation.
Again, we are even happier that Joanne will come to Maine and give us several chances to hear her read from these poems.
As listed above, the book is 800+ pages, collected from many smaller publications over the years.
Here are the Kyger books we still have in stock:
As Ever (selected poems, from Penguin), Again: Poems, The Distressed Look (from Coyote), Some Life, Patzcuaro, and Strange Big Moon (Japan and India journals)
We hope to get more copies of:
All This Every Day, God Never Dies, and Phenomenological.
Joanne's tour of Maine, as it stands today:
Sept 27, Univ. Maine Orono
Sept. 30, Gulf of Maine Books, Brunswick
Oct. 4 - Bates College, Lewiston
Oct. 6 - Univ of Southern Maine, Portland

When you can find the time could you possibly post the times of day or evening that Joanne Kyger will be reading at the variouws venues that you've listed. That is if you have them available. If not, I'll call the various places listed and try and find out the times myself.

Such good news that Joanne is having The Collected published! And even better news that she will be doing readings from the work in Sept/Oct.! Can't wait to make it to at least one of them! I'll be driving up from MA and so wanted to be sure of the times the readings were scheduled.

I have long admired Kyger's work since originally discovering it many years ago and have tried to collect as many of her books as possible that have come my way over the years. To have the opportunity to hear her read is a rare one indeed! Thank-you.
