Friend of Hobblebush,

Autumn is here, and we have some new leaves for you to turn. Read on to learn more about a new addition to the Hobblebush Granite State Poetry Series—and also learn how you can score one of a limited number of mystery boxes!

Volume IX of the Hobblebush Granite State Poetry Series is here!

We're a little more than excited to announce that our last publication in 2014 is now available! Field Guide A Tempo by Henry Walters is volume IX in the Hobblebush Granite State Poetry Series.

This is something special. According to poet Rosanna Warren, "Henry Walters's poems are exuberantly 'out of bounds' and 'in accord,' inventing new edges for their passions in a wild sophistication of verse forms and private mythologies. Unafraid of ecstasy, this poet has stolen Hermes' tortois-lyre and on it he plays tunes at once ancient and violently new. Every line ignites."

Limited Edition, Hand-Stamped Copies!

The day after Field Guide A Tempo came back from the printer, Henry Walters came to our office and spent five hours hand-stamping a limited number of copies with a block print that he himself carved.

You will not find these copies available on Amazon or in most bookstores. We are currently selling them on our website and will run out soon! Don't miss this chance to own a limited edition copy of Field Guide A Tempo.

Book Launch Party for Field Guide A Tempo

Join us in celebrating the publication of volume IX of the Hobblebush Granite State Poetry Series—Field Guide A Tempo by Henry Walters! Henry will be reading from and discussing his poetry in the gorgeous Green Building at The Harris Center for Conservation Education on November 2 at 3 PM. Light refreshments and appetizers will be served. This event is free and open to all. For questions, please contact kirsty@hobblebush.com.

Two Heads are Better than One!

...Or so they say. We're not really sure what Holly and her friend Scoter were thinking about here, but perhaps they managed to puzzle out some solution to one of the world's problems.

Or maybe they just fell asleep.
