I see it is high time I posted again! Tell Me the Story Again, my new poem collection, is in production and will be published late summer, early fall of 2019. Here is a description:
In her latest collection of poems, Elizabeth Cunningham takes an imaginative leap into a magical world that is also palpably real, a once-upon-a-time place that could exist just after our own time or long ago. Here we meet a motley assortment of people, a temple sweeper, a sword woman, a morose fool, a merry drunk, an enigmatic ancient dreamer, among a host of others. Human voices mingle with those of animals—the mouse who thinks it’s an elephant, a flying pig—and also the voices of river, rain, tree, and stone. Through songs, dreams, and conversations, a story emerges, or many stories woven into one. Cunningham’s hypnotically beautiful language draws us into this story, one we may dimly remember and long to hear again.
Rebecca Singer is directing selected poems from the collection as a dramatic piece on Friday, October 18th at Green Kill “a handicapped accessible exhibition performance Space located at 229 Greenkill Avenue, Kingston, New York, 12401. More details soon on the appearances page.
For those of you awaiting the sequel of Murder at the Rummage Sale (I hope with bated breath), you’ll have to wait just a little longer. We’ve decided to release All the Perils of this Night, much of which is set in the critical presidential election year of 1968) in 2020 when, whooeee!, we’ll be experiencing and even more nail-biting election year. More news as I have it.
Hope you are all well. Much gratitude for keeping in touch. The best way to reach me is through my Elizabeth Cunningham author page on FaceBook or Maeve Rhuad’s page on FaceBook. Blessed Be and Blessed Bees!
