Revolutions We’d Hoped We’d Outgrown
by Jill McCabe Johnson
$19.99, Full-length, paper
Jill McCabe Johnson writes in the tradition of the French Medieval “Chanson d’Aventure,” or Song of Adventure, where a writer walks for immersion, enlightenment, and inspiration. Many of these poems were written on a self-directed walking and writing trek through France in the weeks leading up to and during the ISIS attacks on Paris. Johnson’s first poetry book, Diary of the One Swelling Sea (MoonPath, 2013), won the Nautilus Silver Award in Poetry. Johnson is author of the nonfiction chapbook Borderlines (Sweet, 2016), and series editor for the Being What Makes You anthologies from the University of Nebraska Gender Programs.
