Friday Find

Valentine's Day arrives again next week. In honor of the occasion let me give you a little Italian poetry (or Italian-American poetry, at least).

It's included in this news release that I discovered at the main City University of New York (CUNY) Web site yesterday (See how well I'm researching everything that goes on at my new university-of-employment?).

I was really pleased to discover that George Guida, who is an English professor at one of the CUNY colleges, was a finalist for the Bordighera Poetry Prize; Guida's debut collection, Low Italian: Poems, was recently published by Bordighera Press.

Read the release for more information about Guida, and for excerpts from the book.
