Rain Shadow
Poetry by

83 Contemporary American Poets

Photographs by John Sarsgard
Edited by Larry Fagin

Part fine art photobook, part poetry anthology, this
volume celebrates the special place of poets and
poetry in America's literary life.
Love That Moves The Sun
John Hay

Seven stories by this award-winning Kentucky
author are fashioned into a single narrative of
growth and discovery for Johnnie and his special
friend Olivia.  Tinged with nostalgia of growing
up in the middle of America during the middle of
the last century, this is also a timeless story of
self-discovery.
Mockingbird
A Poem by Robert Morgan

Broadstone Books is pleased to offer this landmark poem
by one of America’s most celebrated contemporary
Appalachian authors for the first time in an edition of its
own.

“Morgan’s witness is radically deep, and mountainously
lofty; it is also characterized by astonishing attention to
detail….”
                                       Michael McFee
                               
The Butterfly's Choice
Poetry by
Joanna Kurowska

"The best book of poetry I've read in a long time."
Gloria Mindock, editor, Červená Barva Press

Informed by the poet's immigrant experience of shifting
between homelands and languages, and underpinned by
her exploration of gnosticism, these are works of clear-
eyed observation and studied contemplation.
Coming in June!
To Banquet with the Ethiopians
A Memoir of Life before the Alphabet
Poetry by
Philip Brady  

"I don’t know anyone with Philip Brady’s profound
sense of his work’s embeddedness in history, its origins
in the body, its realization of community. Long live the
Ethiopians!       —H.L.Hix, author of
Chromatic and
                                  
First Fire, Then Birds

Poised between myth and time, this unique verse
memoir blends Homer’s discovery the alphabet with a
man’s recovery from near death and a boy’s struggle to
see the adult world through the prism of an ancient epic.
