This weekend is the official launch for my new picture book
with Helen Frost, Sweep Up the Sun.
The cover image is below, and I’ll share more images from
the book soon.
We’ll have a book signing and exhibition at Book Beat this Saturday,
February 28, from 1-4 and a signing and presentation on Sunday,
March 1 as part of “Read in the Park” at Berkley High School.
Here’s the website with all the news, reviews and up-to-date information
for the book: BugDreams.com/sweep/.
Conjuring the future from the past, chasing
the twilight before the first bombs fall.
Canada goose, Branta canadensis
Lighting a small world, she calls for lovers
as the daylight burns out.
Firefly | Lampyridae | Photinus pyralis
Kicking from birth, waging battles
in the clouds, angels in free fall
push their luck.
Starling | Sturnus vulgaris
A stained-glass sphinx rules a haunted world
of torn-up roads, on a never-ending search
for her shadow.
Chinese Praying Mantis | Tenodera aridifolia sinensis
