In this collection of poems, winner of the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize, Jennifer Rose writes primarily of places and displacement. Using the postcard's conventions of brevity, immediacy, and, in some instances, humor, these poems are greetings from destinations as disparate as Cape Cod, Kentuckiana, and Croatia. Rich in imagery, deftly crafted, and imbued with a lightness of voice these poems are also postmarked from poetry's more familiar provinces of love, nature and loss. Chosen from hundreds of submissions, Hometown for an Hour, is the winner of the ninth Summers Poetry Prize. As final judge David Yezzi wrote: “Jennifer Rose's “postcards” arrive with news of a world receding-but for her evocative communiquésˆrapidly into the past. The poems serve to fix in time her transient locals, revealing not remote tourist destinations but the very places where the poet has been most alive. Rose's odd assortment of places, she tells us, have seduced her, just as reading her poems, with their elegant and muscular formal excellence, will most certainly seduce readers. Tempering nostalgia with wit and emotional immediacy with consummate musicianship and craft, these poems reconstruct a world that, in Rose's fine imagining of it, becomes not only hers but ours as well.” Poet and city planner Jennifer Rose has been a “Discovery”/ The Nation winner and the recipient of awards and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Society of America, among others. Her previous collection, The Old Direction of Heaven, was published in 2000. She lives in Waltham, Massachusetts.

They are the troops that nobody wants to see, carrying a message that no military family ever wants to hear. Since the start of the war in Iraq, Marines like Major Steve Beck found themselves charged with a mission they never asked for and one for which there can be no training: casualty notification. In Final Salute, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jim Sheeler weaves together the stories of the fallen, the broken homes they have left behind, and one man's effort to help heal the wounds of those left grieving. But it is not a book about war, politics, or liberal vs. conservative. Achingly beautiful and honest, it is a book that every American-every human-can embrace. From the Trade Paperback edition.

BONUS: This edition contains a Magic Hour discussion guide. In the rugged Pacific Northwest lies the Olympic National Forest—nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness and impossible beauty. From deep within this old growth forest, a six-year-old girl appears. Speechless and alone, she offers no clue as to her identity, no hint of her past. Having retreated to her western Washington hometown after a scandal left her career in ruins, child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary little girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable fear and isolation. To reach her, Julia must discover the truth about Alice’s past—although doing so requires help from Julia’s estranged sister, a local police officer. The shocking facts of Alice’s life test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice—and for herself. In Magic Hour, Kristin Hannah creates one of her most beloved characters, and delivers an incandescent story about the resilience of the human spirit, the triumph of hope, and the meaning of home.
