Wait: Poems from the Pandemic

Littoral Books is pleased to announce the publication of an anthology created in response to the pandemic of 2020-21. Sixty-five Maine poets and visual artists contributed to WAIT, among them Leonore with the poem "Rabenmutter."  Edited by poet Jeri Theriault.

The art and poetry work together to reveal the feelings, frustrations, desires, and suffering all of us experienced during this time. Passionate and contemplative, angry and hopeful, sorrowful and humorous, these poets and artists show us, as poet laureate Baron Wormser writes, “a transfiguring vision – what the pandemic felt like from the inside.” Not only an important work of Maine literature, Wait is also an historical document, recording a year of quarantine, isolation, resilience and hope.
