Mountain Lion by Lesley Lebkowicz

In medias res by Geoff Page

In Mountain Lion, the unmistakable voice of Lesley Lebkowicz brings us the poet's perspective on the nature of things, highlighting the intimate network of friends and family that ground her work and provide rich materials for her art.

Geoff Page's twenty-fifth collection, In medias res, reveals the poet's keen eye and powers of observation.  Each carefully crafted poem is underwritten with a sense of the deeper meaning in daily experience, providing glimpses of the eternal in the everyday.

Join Lebkowicz and Page as poet and former journalist Penelope Layland and award-winning poet John Foulcher officially launch these latest editions published by Pitt Street Poetry.
