Palindrome is winner of the 2017 Weatherford Award for Best Appalachian Poetry Book. US Poet Laureate Emeritus Ted Kooser has said of the book, “Although there have been many individual poems about [dementia], by many poets, I know of no other book by just one poet that so completely and artfully sums up the emotions associated with that painful deterioration.” Palindrome is available from Dos Madres Press, Small Press Distribution, your local bookstore (including Roebling Point Books in Covington, KY), or from on-line vendors such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
