AVAILABLE DECEMBER 4, 2015] Blue Territory is a poetic immersion into the life and art of Joan Mitchell, the great American abstract expressionist painter. A contemporary of Jackson Pollock and Willem De Kooning, she is not as well known as her male counterparts because she was a woman and also because she spent most of her working life in France. Still, in 2013, Bloomsburg Business listed Mitchell as the bestselling female artist of all time. When asked to talk about her paintings, Joan Mitchell often responded, "If I could say it in words, I'd write a book." Here is her book. At once unique and universal, Blue Territory is at its core an exploration of love and life, and what it means to love - and live - what you do. Meticulously researched and lyrically written, it will appeal to anyone interested in passionate engagement with the world. The book eschews images so as to allow the words to form them, thereby freeing the reader to imagine the paintings, much as Mitchell would have to do before picking up her brush.

From critically acclaimed author Jeannine Atkins comes a gorgeous, haunting biographical novel in verse about a half Native American, half African American sculptor working in the years following the Civil War. A sculptor of historical figures starts with givens but creates her own vision. Edmonia Lewis was just such a sculptor, but she never spoke or wrote much about her past, and the stories that have come down through time are often vague or contradictory. Some facts are known: Edmonia was the daughter of an Ojibwe woman and an African-Haitian man. She had the rare opportunity to study art at Oberlin, one of the first schools to admit women and people of color, but lost her place after being accused of poisoning and theft, despite being acquitted of both. She moved to Boston and eventually Italy, where she became a successful sculptor. But the historical record is very thin. The open questions about Edmonia’s life seem ideally suited to verse, a form that is comfortable with mysteries. Inspired by both the facts and the gaps in history, author Jeannine Atkins imagines her way into a vision of what might have been.

One of the goals of Unbroken Circle is to subvert stereotypes--to show that Southern people are not simply shoeless rural white people. We are a people as varied as the Southern landscape, from the mountains of Appalachia to the deltas of Mississippi to the skyscrapers of Atlanta. We are black, white, Latino, Native American, Middle Eastern, Asian, and multiracial. We are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Wiccan, atheist and agnostic. We are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, straight, and questioning. We are urban and rural, old and young, poor and rich, and all points in between. We are all these things, plus more that don't fit into neat categories. The voices in this collection represent some of the diverse voices of our region, just a few spoonfuls from the giant pot of gumbo that makes up our region. When Larry Smith of Bottom Dog Press agreed to co-edit this anthology, we struggled with the title, but once he suggested The Unbroken Circle, the vision for this anthology materialized. "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" is a classic in the Southern songbook,sung at pickin's and funerals alike and recorded by artists from the Carter Family to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Mavis Staples. In the song, the speaker grieves the loss of his/her mother but takes comfort in the fact that the circle of love created by family will be "unbroken by and by." In a country where politicians and pundits draw lines and build walls to separate people, it is especially fitting to embrace the circle, a shape symbolizing openness, wholeness, connectedness. One of the things that unites the pieces in this collection, both fiction and nonfiction, is the Southern love of stories. Each author,whether established or emerging, has created a distinct Southern voice which is nobody's stereotype. In a time when many people have lost the ability to listen and empathize, we the authors and editors of this collection, invite you to pull up a chair, join our circle, and listen to our stories. --Julia Watts
