About The Books:
Sophie Morelli, Bad Habits, is a collection of poetry written in the modern styles of Jon Sands, Olivia Gatwood, and Phil Kaye
Sophie Morelli is currently a student at the State University of New York at Potsdam studying English and Secondary Education. She is also a Lake Placid native. This is her first major publication.
Roger Mitchell, Reasons Dream:
"Roger Mitchell's poems are superbly crafted--and at the same time always open to surprise and serendipity. The poems may begin in unassuming observation, but their ultimate aim is the clarity of thought that can only arise from a sensibility that is deeply self-aware but never self-important. These are wry, rueful, and subtly original poems--the work of a contemporary master."--David Wojahn
