We are very excited to announce the release of Tumbleweed: Against All Odds by CLS Ferguson, the newest installment of the Native Blossoms Chapbook Series! A highly accomplished writer, performer, and speech instructor, this is CLS Ferguson’s second chapbook, and her fourth book of poetry.

If you’d like to join us to celebrate the release of Tumbleweed: Against All Odds, please join us for the official book launch at Chevalier’s Books on Sunday, May 6, 2018 from 5:00-6:30 PM. CLS Ferguson will read from the collection, and will also be joined by special guest readers from the Native Blossoms Series: Nancy Carroll, Anne Yale, Melisa Malvin-Middleton, and Cindy Rinne.
As part of the Native Blossoms Chapbook Series, CLS Ferguson’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.” CLS has chosen to write about Manzanita, which is featured prominently on the book’s cover. CLS will be signing copies of the books, which will be available for purchase at the event.
