Individual poets who presented their works represented 6 different counties. I’m including some of my favorite lines. Apologies to anyone I unintentionally left out!
I was impressed with the range of experience levels represented in the book. A 5th grade class submitted a poem, as did a 90 year old. All four Indiana Poets Laureate are featured in the front: Joyce Brinkman, Norbert Krapf, Karen Kovacik, and George Kalamaras.
I recommend this collection as a great way to reflect on Indiana in our bicentennial year. Reading it felt like sitting down on a leisurely afternoon and eating a Hoosier pie, with each slice giving me a little taste of a different county. (The poets represent 59 counties.) Well done, poets, editor Barry Harris, JL Kato, Brick Street Poetry, and all the many people involved in this project (including lots of ISFPC members)!
