Book Release Party and Reading for The Lost Tribe of Us

Main Street Rag Publishing Company will host a book release party and reading on Saturday, October 13 in Front Royal, Virginia for The Lost Tribe of Us, which won the 2007 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award. The Lost Tribe of Us is the first book by poet Heather Davis. Of her work, Stephen Dobyns says, “Heather Davis has a fine lyric voice that rests upon an incredible sense of syntax, pacing and rhythm. The result is a seamlessness that any other poet might envy. Her poems have a clarity, intelligence and deep emotional centers that make them a pleasure to read and re-read.” Heather has work forthcoming in Beltway Poetry Quarterly and has been published by Poet Lore, Cream City Review, Slipstream, Word Wrights, and others. The event begins at 4:00 pm in Front Royal. For more information or for directions, please email hdavis@jsi.com or call 703-593-0241.
