my tiny book

I met Eileen in New York, by the way, at the launch of her Marsh Hawk Press book. A good time was had by all.

Here is part of the announcement:
Meritage Press (MP) is pleased to announce the fourth title in its series of Tiny Books that aligns poetry with fair trade and economic development issues affecting Third World countries.

The Tiny Books create demand for fair trade workers' products while also sourcing donations for easing poverty in poorer areas of the world. We are delighted to announce that MP's fourth Tiny Book is:
