News from The Frog
June 2018
Award Winning Poet, Ruth Thompson at the Frog!

Saturday, June 16th at 4pm

Ruth Thompson's 'fierce, gorgeous, sensual' poems have been collected in three books of poetry: Crazing, Woman With Crows, and Here Along Cazenovia Creek. Her work has won many national awards, has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and choreographed by Japanese dancer Shizuno Nasu. 

At the Frog, Ruth will share a few poems from her two newest projects Whale Fall, which is both the changing ecosystem of the dead whale as it sinks slowly to the ocean floor and also a realm of transformation; and Journeying West, which tracks a woman hero's spiritual journey through a western desert landscape. She'll also share a few favorites from her published books, followed by a short talk on "Generation & Revision" - tips for generating new work (or finding your way around resistance), as well as for revision of work that seems to be stalled. There will be time for questions, and a book signing.
The Frog Needs Your Support

In today's online world of discounts and downloads, it's difficult to keep a community bookstore alive.  And, the Four-Eyed Frog is indeed a community-owned bookstore, made possible by 24 local benefactors and hundreds of hours of volunteer time.  However, to remain viable in our small town, we need continuing support from friends of the Frog who make book and gift purchases at their local bookstore and encourage others in the community to do the same.

Your community-owned Four-Eyed Frog bookstore cannot exist without you. So, hop on over to the Frog before June 25th, mention this email and receive 15% off any single item you purchase. It's the Frog's way of saying thank you for your support!
