Hats Off! to Maureen Ryan Griffin whose recent poetry collection, Ten Thousand Cicadas Can't Be Wrong, was featured on Garrison Keillor's The Writer's Almanac on July 8, 2015.


Hats Off! to Danny Johnson whose book The Last Road home (forthcoming August, 2016, from Kensington Press) will be featured in Buzz Books 2016: Spring/Summer. The eighth edition of Buzz Books will feature more than thirty of the biggest books of Spring and Summer 2016. It will be released on January 14, 2016, in advance of Winter Institute. The collection will be offered in print and digital formats at all of the major trade shows, including BEA. It will also be promoted continuously through Publishers Marketplace, Netgalley, and the trades. Titles featured in Buzz Books enjoy all the excitement of big BEA titles (and free samples) by making substantial pre-publication excerpts available to readers, booksellers, librarians, media, and industry members. Previous authors featured in this annual Buzz Books collection include Mitch Albom, Geraldine Brooks, Lauren Groff, Alice Hoffman, Sloane Crosley, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Stewart, Mary Karr, and Claire Vaye Watkins.


Hats Off! to Robert A. Rubin who won The Allen Tate Poetry Prize for the finest poetry published in The Sewanee Review in 2015. His poems “Encyclopedia” and “The Through-Hiker" appeared in the Spring 2015 issue.
