Welcome to the May, 2011 Newsletter
The Massachusetts Book Award recently announced their "Must Reads."
Červená Barva Press is excited to announce that two of its authors made the list.
The authors are:
Tam Lin Neville for her book,
Triage (Červená Barva Press, 2010)
Catherine Sasanov for her book,
Had Slaves (Firewheel Editions, 2010)
Many of the poems published in this book, Červená Barva Press published in
a chapbook called
Tara in 2008. The chapbook contains one poem not found in the book.
My friend, Doug Holder and his press, Ibbetson Street Press, also had a book in the "Must Reads" called "East of Eden"
by Ruth Kramer Baden. Krikor Der-Hohannesian also received a "Must Read" for his chapbook,
"Ghosts and Whispers" (Finishing Line Press, 2010).
This is really exciting and good luck to all these authors. The Massachusetts Book Award will be announced later.
