PAUL PINES REVIEWED BY AMERICAN BOOK REVIEW

CHARLOTTE SONGS, Paul Pines' last collection from March Hawk Press, is reviewed in the Portraits in Poetry section of the American Book Review. Here's an excerpt from Hasanthika Sirisena's piece,  "Masked":
                I’ll admit that when I first picked up Paul Pines’s latest poetry                         collection I didn’t truly  appreciate its subversiveness… It was only                 when I realized how rare such tributes are that I began to                               understand the true importance of these spare, elegant poems.
 You go go HERE for the complete review. We also replicate it here in an image that can be enlarged:

A SANDY MCINTOSH READING

From Sandy McIntosh:
I'll be reading from my memoir, A Hole In the Ocean: A Hamptons' Apprenticeship at Canio's in Sag Harbor, Saturday, August 13th at 5:00 pm 
"DELICIOUSLY DROLL. Stars-in-the- eyes young poet meets literary and art world icons in the Hamptons. And re- meets and reconsiders. And admires. And continues to honor and to create his own work."—Laura Wells, The East Hampton Star
Canio’s Books was founded in 1980 by Canio Pavone, when Sag Harbor was yet a charming fishing village. It is one of the dwindling number of bookstores left on Eastern Long Island--and, perhaps, even in the whole country--that retains the tradition of the neighborhood bookstore as cultural repository: a lovely and mysterious place among the stacks where young readers and writers can discover the magic of the world of literature, as I once did. 
All sales of my book will be donated to Canio's.
