October's Almost Here!

It's that time already to vote for our next Poetry Book Club book, even though we are still in the middle of September's selection. As a side note, I just began reading our September book, Frank Bidart's Star Dust, this weekend and it is amazing. Remember to have it read by September 24th!

On to our October poll. As I mentioned last month, I am retaining all of the books that received at least one vote. So the only books that are getting cut this time are the September selection and Kevin Young's For the Confederate Dead. I am adding in their places a book that was recommended by Jonas from What Turtle Blood Tastes Like and a book that I found on Amazon that looked cool. All in all, a very scientific process.

Here are the links to this month's selections:
Fever Almanac by Kristy Bowen
Migration by W.S. Merwin
Frail Craft by Jessica Fisher
The Pajamaist by Matthew Zapruder -- Thanks Jonas!
Modern Life by Matthea Harvey

Voting will close two weeks from today. Vote early and often!
