Carolyn Howard-Johnsonabout this book: Magdalena Ball and I worked across two hemispheres to self-publish the Celebration Series of poetry chapbooks in the fine tradition of of poets everywhere. Both of us are mothers and daughters and this chapbook-our first in the series--seemed perfect for both of us because neither are much for sing-songy poetry of traditional greeting cards. At the same time, we both prefer poetry that can be enjoyed without working too hard.
She Wore Emerald Then: Reflections on Motherhood was a USA Book News finalist for poetry and honored by the Military Writers Society of America. The idea is that these little books of about 35 pages can be popped into a greeting-card sized envelope or send as greeting cards by e-mail.
Kristin Johnson, screenwriter and founder of the Warrior Poets Project says, "[Both] poets continue to write poems that don't sound either like banal Hallmark cards or the bitter-at-dysfunctional-family jeremiads that habitually torture MFA writing workshop participants."
She Wore Emerald Then is available as both an e-chapbook and paperback and is illustrated with tender photographs by May Lattanzio. As it happens, it was released the week of the death of Carolyn's mother—a fitting tribute. It is available as a free e-book from April 17 to April 30, just in time for Mother's Day.
