The first book in Gunpowder’s California Poets Series is Gatherer’s Alphabet, by Susan Kelly-DeWitt.
These luscious poems feel like small museums of infinite wonder. Gallery, butterfly, stars in autumn. The wisdom of nature, the work of angels, what women endure—I love these poems. A timeless grace breathes through this marvelous book, this bounty you’ll be grateful that you read.—Lee Herrick, Fresno Poet Laureate (2015-17)
author of Scar and Flower, Gardening Secrets of the Dead, and This Many Miles from Desire
