Poet Katie Kingston has news! Lost Horse Press has just published her new book of poems, Shaking the Kaleidoscope. It is her first complete book! Katie wrote this morning to tell me, “Two poems from the Oaxaca conference are in the book, so I was pleased to acknowledge the Oaxaca Women’s [Creative] Writing Retreat. The chapbook [instructor] Robin [Greene] reviewed with me in Teotitlan del Valle is the first section of the book, (the second section is the Mexico poems) so our week together in Oaxaca was very fruitful for me and I have to thank you again for that.” Thank you, Katie, for making words that sing and speak to the colors, textures and beauty of our world. Besos y abrazos y felicidades. I’m going to order Katie’s book. I hope you do, too. -Norma
