Last week I attended the Juniper Summer Writing Institute. I made some great friends, listened to Matthea Harvey talk about mermaids, Heather Christle talk to local water fowl, and nervously approached James Tate. Not only did I have an awesome week, but I came home to Ben Mirov's Vortexts, which just came out from Supermachine. Mirov is one of the exciting young voices in poetry right now and this new collection of poems proves it. His lines are so clean and they really move, let alone when he hits the high notes of performance in poems:

Saint Monica isn't the patron saint of libraries, but libraries were a saving grace to Mary Biddinger. That's why she is donating four copies of SAINT MONICA to libraries in need, along with a lifetime subscription to Barn Owl Review for each library. Ideally, several of these libraries would be in rural areas, like the setting of the book.
To nominate a library in need, send links + a brief rationale (300 words or fewer) to mb at marybiddinger dot com by 7/5/11. The four libraries will be selected by Mary in consultation with the Barn Owl Review editors, and announced here and elsewhere.
Note: while the book does contain some adult themes, it's not "blasphemous" in a way that would be unwelcome at libraries. Please share this call for nominations, and support your local library whenever you can. Thanks!
