Humanity’s Grace by Dede Montgomery was released January 2022. It is primarily set in Astoria with a few backstories based in Portland. Reviewer Mikko Azul summed up this book: “Humanity’s Grace is a collection of slice-of-life vignettes that eloquently demonstrate the interconnection between us all. Pure genius.” http://www.dedemontgomery.com.
The Opera Sisters, Marianne Monson’s newest historical fiction novel tells the true story of Ida and Louise Cook, two British sisters who used their love of opera as a cover to help Jews escape from Nazi Germany. “A deftly written work of fiction,” Midwest Book Review has written of her work, “an inherently fascinating read from beginning to end.” She is founder and president of The Writer’s Guild. http://www.mariannemonson.com.
The Drowning House by John Sibley Williams is the winner of the 2022 Elixir Press Annual Poetry Award. Contest judge, John A. Nieves, had this to say about it: " The poems that populate this doomed architecture reach out in every direction to try to find purchase on truths that often shift as quickly as tides.” http://www.johnsibleywilliams.com.
