"Render" chosen for 2014 Over the Rainbow List


Render has been chosen for the American Library Association's 2014 Over the Rainbow Book List! It's a fantastic honor to be on this list with so many fine books.

Also chosen for the list, which features 71 books, are fellow Sibling Rivalry Press poets Joanna Hoffman (Running for Trap Doors) and Theresa Davis (After This We Go Dark). The SRP anthology This assignment is so gay (edited by Megan Volpert and which includes one of my poems) also made the list's Top 10. Our books will be on a lot of library shelves around the country very soon.

The 2014 list was chosen during the ALA's midwinter meeting in Philadelphia and announced last night. Many thanks to the ALA and the Over the Rainbow committee for choosing Render! And, once again, thanks to Bryan and Seth at SRP for believing in our work.
