More Viz for New Literary Anthology
Jenn Myers of the SUN wrote an excellent piece about the “River Muse” literary anthology from Sons of Liberty Publishing in Nashua, N.H. Her article has been picked up by boston.com today and shared on Facebook. Read the article here.
At the Friday night book launch at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center, more than 125 people turned out to support the authors and publisher. Lloyd Corricelli and Dave Daniel, the co-editors, reported that more than 100 books had sold. All proceeds from sales will benefit local veterans’ charities. Among the anthology contributors on hand to sign books were some rh.com regulars like Steve O’Connor, Henri Marchand and Nancye Tuttle. John Sampas of the Kerouac Estate attended and was thanked for his generosity in providing several unpublished works by Jack Kerouac and Sebastian Sampas for the collection. Also spotted in the crowd were Martha Mayo, Chath pierSath, Pierre Comtois, Janet Lambert-Moore, Nancy Marchand, Janet Egan, Peter Eliopoulous, Chaz Scoggins, Kassie Rubico (the Virginia Wolff of Lowell, somebody said), E. Christopher Clark, Joshua Shapiro, Kevin Coughlin, Jerry Bizantz, Bill Walsh, Dean Contover, JF “Jack” Dacey, Judith Dickerman-Nelson, and others whose names escape me right now.
One Response to More Viz for New Literary Anthology
The launch event on Friday night was incredible. So good to see so many cohorts on the Lowell literary scene. And now that I have River Muse in hand, I’ve been enjoying the wealth of great writing in it — and I don’t say that because I have two stories I wrote for the Sun reprinted in it. The book is a great addition to Lowell’s rich literary heritage. I hope more volumes happen, too, since the Merrimack Valley truly is a mecca for inspired writing.
