If you have attended to the news lately you know this is the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina that so devastated New Orleans and the gulf region. In 2010 our press had the opportunity to recognize Katrina’s 5th anniversary by publishing Lyn Lifshin’s book of thoughtful personal poems, Katrina, about the people caught up in this most difficult experience. These poems are so indicative of Lyn’s direct, personal style. Lyn writes without embellishments so that the lives of the people can be seen. She is a master at this kind of direct, immediate poetry.
Katrina by Lyn Lifshin is available at our distributor Small Press Distribution (SPD) www.spdbooks.org. To see more on Lyn’s book Katina and her recent book that our Press has published, Malala, about the courageous recipient of the 2014 Noble Peace Prize for her work go to our website www.poeticmatrix.com.
