In the opinion of this publisher, poetry is best represented when read out loud. When attending a reading, the listener can more fully appreciate the work after he or she has first become familiar with it on the page. This is why we have books. But to really understand the nuances of language and inflection, it is helpful to hear the work read. Offered here is an audio sample from books NorthShore Press has produced. It is a wonderful way to get to know the author more intimatelyjust one step short of meeting face-to-face.
