Amadis of Gaul and other news

140 And Counting authors:

Sue Burke has self-published her translation of the medieval Spanish novel Amadis of Gaul. It’s available in print and Kindle editions at Amazon. Burke says, “The book includes a preface by a present-day Spanish novelist, an introduction, notes to chapters, and an appendix explaining what eliminated Amadis from respectable bookshelves — it wasn’t Don Quixote.” More information here!

Read Neil Ellman‘s gorgeous poem “When the Heart Stops” at Poetry Bulawayo.

Members of the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia can read about the beginnings of Upper Rubber Boot, and some of editor Joanne Merriam‘s opinions about the challenges facing the book industry, in the March/April 2012 Eastword (non-members should be able to read it come May).

Stella Pierides has haiku alongside Susan Diridoni this week in Issa’s Untidy Hut.

And, if you live in or near Nashville, make a note on your calendar for Saturday, March 24th. Peg Duthie and Joanne Merriam will be reading with Mary Alexandra Agner at the main branch of the Nashville Public Library. Details at our events page or on Facebook and Goodreads.
