News and Notes

Congratulations to our Poetry Editor, Art Mampel, who has published a new book of poems. The Turn of the Mind to that Shaded Place is a selection of Mampel’s latest poems, and can be purchased from Amazon or from the poet.

“Arthur Mampel may be America’s most underrated, least known, good, really good poet. He is a national treasure, alas, not nearly as widely read as he should be. He is the people’s poet. The trouble is not enough people have heard of him or read his remarkable work. This modest volume may change that. Let us hope.” — Dan Rather, former anchor for CBS Evening News
