Peter Kilgore's Collected Poems


North Country Press has just published Quarry - The Collected Poems of Peter Kilgore - a 300 page collection of poems by this wonderful Maine poet/educator.
Here is what Gary said on the back cover of the book:
Here in Maine, in the early 1970s, Contraband Magazine started appearing, and I found a group of young Maine poets, kindred souls in a lonely state for poets. One of my favorites was Peter Kilgore. His poems struck home. They were clear, spare, intelligent, and informed. Peter didn't stay with us long enough, and it is a great gift to have this collection of his poems in print, in the air, to hear the sound of his voice, again.
