Yak Press is pleased to announce the release of Listen to the Codex by Cindy Rinne, the newest addition to the Native Blossoms Chapbook Series. A well-known poet who lives and writes about San Bernardino, California and environs, this is Cindy’s second chapbook, and her fourth book of poetry.
We’re so happy to welcome Cindy to the Native Blossoms family, that we’re offering free shipping on pre-orders of her chapbook through July 16, 2017! To pre-order a copy for yourself, click here. Pre-orders will be fulfilled on July 17, 2017, one week before the official launch, which will be held at Skylight Books!
If you’d like to join us to celebrate the release of Listen to the Codex, please join us for the official book launch at Skylight Books on Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 5:00-7:00 PM. Cindy Rinne will read, and will also be joined by special guest readers from the Native Blossoms Series, Nancy Carroll and Melisa Malvin-Middleton.
As part of the Native Blossoms Chapbook Series, Cindy’s chapbook features a constraint poem “that takes the botanical name of a wildflower or other flora native to the poet’s locale as its title.” Cindy has chosen to write about Black Sage, which is featured prominently on the book’s cover. Guests who purchase the book at the event will be entered to win some special “black sage” prize giveaways!
