JULY 2016 / Book giveaway, Whitman & more

Our Goodreads giveaway of American Tumbleweeds ends this Monday July 4! ENTER BOOK GIVEAWAY


With Walt Whitman: Himself, by Jean Huets, is available on iTunes as an interactive digital book. Ed Folsom, Editor of Walt Whitman Quarterly Review and the Whitman Series, and Co-Director of The Walt Whitman Archive, says:

“Jean Huets’ With Walt Whitman: Himself is a true Whitmanian feast—for the intellect as well as for the eyes. It is hard to put this remarkably interactive book down once you’ve opened its riches—beautifully reproduced illustrations of Whitman’s various places, friends, family, disciples, contemporaries—his cities and his rural retreats. The descriptions of his life and times are concise and smart. The book keeps opening up to new facets of Whitman, his work, and his era. Every time I open my iPad, I’m tempted to enter into it again, and I find myself often giving in to the temptation.”

Ed Folsom and Christopher Merrill will lead the upcoming free on-line course Whitman’s Civil War: Writing and Imaging Loss, Death, and Disaster. Sign up soon—the course starts July 18. I’ll see you there!


This summer author Marta Elva will tour New England, reading from American Tumbleweeds and meeting her readers. Join her if you’re in the neighborhood!

Visit American Tumbleweeds at Circling Rivers.


Jim Minick’s novel Fire Is Your Water is forthcoming Spring 2017 (Ohio UP). I read a draft of the first chapter when Jim workshopped it with Fred Leebron at Tinker Mountain Writer’s Workshop. I can’t wait to read the rest. Visit Jim
