The anthology, edited by William Kupinse and Tammy Robacker, is called In Tahoma’s Shadow: Poems from the City of Destiny.  It was designed by Leah Vendl, an English major at Puget Sound. (Well done, Leah).

The anthology runs to 150 pages.  It includes work by Laura Jensen, Rosalind Bell, Grace Livingston, Leah Coakley, Beverly Conner, Ann Putnam, Michelle Jones (UPS alum), Kevin Miller, Sarah Borsten (UPS alum), Mike Robinson, Elliot Trotter (UPS alum), Lynn Martin,Tad Monroe, Paul Nelson, Hans Ostrom, Connie Walle, Joanne McCarthy, and dozens of other poets.

Copies will be available at King’s Books on St. Helens.

Exquisite Disarray is the publisher, and the ISBN # is 978-0-9814854-2.

Congratulations to editors Bill Kupinse and Tammy Robacker for putting together this splendid anthology.
