This morning I learned that THE QUEER SOUTH anthology made the American Library Association’s top ten LGBT Over the Rainbow titles. I have two poems in that anthology, edited by Douglas Ray. (It features the likes of Dorothy Allison and Richard Blanco.) In celebration, I think I’ll add those poems to my Monday Poets reading tonight at the Free Library with Amy Small-McKinney. Details here:
Sibling Rivalry Press did an outstanding job overall this year with the ALA and full-length books by their talented poets. SRP’s editor notes the other titles in the message below:
“Sibling Rivalry Press featured (again and again—6 more times!) in the American Library Association’s Over the Rainbow list of recommended LGBT literature.
THE QUEER SOUTH (ed. Douglas Ray) made the TOP 10.
THE EROTIC POSTULATE (Matthew Hittinger)
GOD OF LONGING (Brent Calderwood)
A HISTORY OF THE UNMARRIED( Stephen Mills)
PRIME ( Darrel Alejandro Holnes, Saeed Jones, Rickey Laurentiis, Phillip B. Williams, and L. Lamar Wilson)
JOY EXHAUSTIBLE – ASSARACUS #14 (eds. Bryan Borland and Seth Pennington).
We couldn’t be more proud.” — SRP
