Divida: A Celebration of Monica Hand

Monica Hand's second poetry collection, "Divida," comes out in April 2018, and all of us who love Monica and love great poetry will be gathering to celebrate. Reading will be a beautiful spread of Monica's friends and colleagues - check back soon for the official list.

Monica Hand's first collection, "Me and Nina," was published by Alice James Books in 2012. "Divida" was accepted, also by Alice James, in December 2016. To our community's stunned sorrow, Monica died just a few days after that happy news broke. So, in her honor, we'll be reading, gifting, promoting this book as hard as we can.

Cause two books is NOT enough, but two is what we have...
