EIL poet Susan Elbe has a new book out, The Map of What Happened, which won the Backwaters Prize at Backwaters Press. (By lovely chance, EIL poet Aaron Anstett is also a past winner of the Backwaters Prize, for No Accident.)  Susan will be reading from her new book this month at several places in Wisconsin, and in early November in Forest Park, Illinois (near Chicago). If you are one of our Midwestern readers, I hope you have a chance to hear her!
