Library Partners Press presents ... THE HOPWOOD POETS REVISITED, edited with an introduction by Donald Beagle

Important interviews with a select group of living poets who have won Hopwood Awards at the University of Michigan.

For carefully curating these interviews, Don Beagle deserves all the glory there is to be had from publishing such a timely and timeless work. All the glory. All of it. Godspeed, Don Beagle.”

WINSTON-SALEM, NC, USA, December 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Don Beagle, librarian extraordinaire by day and rowdy underground poet by night, is up to his award-winning ways again with his new book THE HOPWOOD POETS REVISITED, a collection of interviews and conversations with eighteen of the most esteemed poets of their respective generations.

Granted, the interviewees are hardly a group of rag-tag underdogs, but having won a Hopwood himself back in the day, Don Beagle adds a distinct gravitas to the crafty conversations. And the result is that, collectively, whether they know it or not, Team Hopwood has once again pronounced and proclaimed, loud and proud that ... <clears throat> ... POETRY IS COOL.

But of course, the shot-callers down at Library Partners Press World Headquarters already knew that, and literally couldn't wait to award Mr. Beagle the inaugural Gail O'Day Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry for his efforts.

Because where else can one find a book which includes personal and professional reflections from the following incredible folks?
