Here are a few images from my brand-new children's book, A Portrait in Poems: The Storied Life of Gertrude Stein & Alice B. Toklas (KIDS CAN Press, 2019). The book will be available in March 2020. I could not be more pleased with Rachel Katstaller's illustrations. I'm also so very grateful to editor Kathleen Keenan--as well as the other Kids Can Staff members--and to my ever-dedicated agent Abi Samoun. A Portrait in Poems could not have happened without you.

A Portrait in Poems was inspired by my trips to Paris, as well as the video Paris Was a Woman And, of course, by the women (many of them American) who chose to move to the City of Light at the beginning of the 20th century.


FIREWEED PRESS (Madison, WI) is publishing another chapbook of my adult poetry!

This one's called tonight the poem, and it will be available March 2020.

I'm grateful to editors Robin Chapman and Jeri McCormick - and to FJ Bergman for her expertise in layout and cover design.
