VI English professor and department chair, Edison Jennings, recently learned that his manuscript of poetry titled Reckoning will be published by Jacar Press next month.
Jacar Press is planning a soft launch of the book in late fall prior to the holidays, then an official launch in early 2014. Reckoning is not being presold; however, Jacar Press will take reservations and ship once the books arrive. For those who reserve copies by Oct. 31, a 20% discount is given from the $11.95 cover price, and shipping is $3. If you would like to reserve a copy of Reckoning, email Richard Krawiec (firstname.lastname@example.org). After November, Reckoning may be purchased through Jacar Press’s website.
Jennings has graciously decided to help support VI through book sales, and for every book that a member of the VI community orders, he will donate $2 to the VI Development Fund. Professor Jennings asks that VI students, alumni, friends, faculty or staff members who purchase a book email him at (email@example.com) so he can keep record of how many books are ordered.
With your order of Reckoning, you will also receive a 20% discount on any other Jacar Press title, including the upcoming anthology What Matters, in which Jennings has a poem alongside Pulitzer Prize winner Claudia Emerson, Macarthur Foundation Genius Grant Award winner Thylias Moss, National Book Award finalist Alan Shapiro, and 90 other accomplished poets.
