We’re very excited that the debut novel of our talented colleague Professor Laurie Frankel, The Atlas of Love (St. Martin’s Press, 23.99) will be released next month, on August 17. Advance press describes the book as “highly literate,” “insightful,” and “beautifully written”–and some of you may have been fortunate enough to have heard Professor Frankel read from it this past spring. The rest of us are eagerly awaiting it.
If, like us, you can’t wait, you can pre-order the book (or a Kindle version thereof) from amazon.com here.
Congratulations to Laurie from all of us in the department!

(from Virginia Bunker, by way of Puget Sound’s Shirley Skeel):
City Arts Magazine is calling for submissions of original poetry, prose and visual art for “&” — a special section in our monthly Tacoma edition.
This section of City Arts is reserved for locally made art that translates well on the printed page.
If you haven’t yet checked it out, take a look at our March issue where we are pleased to feature the work of local writer J. J. Hudson.
The deadline for consideration in the “&” section of our April issue is Thursday, March 11th. Can’t make that deadline? Not to worry. There are ongoing opportunities for publication throughout 2010. We welcome your submissions at any time.
Visual artists please note: high-resolution images must be available at 300 dpi.
