The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of Duets: Love Poems & Prayers by Stephanie Baird of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania.

This is an exceptional collection of poems that go to the very soul of human relationships, unafraid to explore the truths, textures, and tensions that inhabit that complex realm. Baird embraces nature, science, and art in her work. Indeed, several pieces in the book are matched with art done by both the poet and her husband Ben Sears, enriching and broadening the reader's experience. This is truly a book for the mind, heart, eyes, and ears.

“The first full-length collection by Joanne Lehman takes us into the nooks and founts of her imagination and memory where rural family members “kept their distance” and their wits and teach her the balanced nature of life deeply lived on “this  side of the river,” where, for “every seven sours” there are “seven sweets.” The book celebrates both loss and wonder-filled discovery in poems that sustain us all.”

In the summer of 2016, Scott Gregory, having completed a successful career as a special ed teacher, took a ‘trip of a lifetime’ to Africa, an adventure more than fifty years in the making, deriving from his boyhood experience, his passion and sense of curiosity, and an abundant sense of pride in his heritage. This travel journal, along with its pictures, engages us from the beginning with its sense of excitement, wonder, and the ever-present voice and wit of its author.

(Second Place winner in the 2017 Orchard Street Press Chapbook  Contest)

This is a book of remarkable images and insights. Consider these lines from “Deaf Mary:” When you signed, a magician’s doves flew/ from your hands. Some words burst/through the air like pheasants/surprised in tall grass.” Waters’ engagement with the details of life and living create a truly rewarding experience for the reader.

These are poems that bring our eye and mind close to the beauty of nature in both its finest detail and in its grandeur. In “The Ocotillo Forest,” he writes: “The Ocotillo forest bides its time. It combs the lean light of dawn and dusk/choosing only the finest threads, thin as a melody line, upon which to weave its desert song.” This is an exquisite gallery from Mr. Onachila’s very capable pen.

From places and time that go back to the fifties, Joe Cheslock thoughtfully considers his experiences in “poems of Cleveland and other sacred places.” We are, as Cheslock says, very much who and what we are because of  “where we were born, grew up, and worked. These poems explores this ‘ancestry’ of his life in engaging and thought-provoking lines.

The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of In The Diamond Light of an Always Morning an exciting new chapbook by Larsen Bowker of Blacksburg, Virginia

Thoughts about The Diamond Light of an Always Morning:

"Larsen Bowker's poems are stark, vivid, tough, gentle, stricken, joyful—all of that, sometimes in the same poem. He has forged a clear, credible voice out of a lifetime of varied and sometimes difficult experience, and I for one am grateful for it."
