"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea
The Spokane literary scene continues to amaze. Here’s another great anthology just out from Sage Hill Press, Railtown Almanac: A Spokane Poetry Anthology. Lots of wonderful poets included herein, including Christopher Howell, Jonathan Johnson, Shann Ray, Laura Reed, Nance Van Winckel, Jess Walter, and Maya Jewell Zeller, as well as my former teachers D.S. Butterworth, Beth Cooley, and Tod Marshall. Please to be part of it all.
