Well, yesterday I received the sad news that the Alsop Review Press is going to discontinue their Spoken Word Series. Apparently, it was more costly and more time consuming than anticipated. There is still time to grab a copy of A Shore Without Silence before they close up shop--there's even a handy dandy paypal link--this poetry CD has 32 tracks and includes many of the poems from Red Paper Flower, all of the poems from Spring Tide, and a few uncollected poems. Professionally recorded in our friend Dave's studio (Thanks, Dave!) the CD is rather elegantly packaged and goes for $10 plus S&H. Others in the series include Kim Addonizio, Rhina Espaillat, Jack Foley and Robert Sward. It's too bad--I thought the AR Press was really filling a niche with these CDs.
