POETRY SUPER HIGHWAY BOOKSTORE

   Featured this week in the Poets of the Week section of the PSH
   Bookstore:

   The Secrets of Falling by LaDonna Witmer

   The Secrets of Falling is a collection of poems that chronicle a
   woman's fall from grace, her climb back up, and everyone she meets on
   the long way down. Written with equal parts razor and lipstick, this
   book includes poems that span nearly 10 years of falling and climbing
   and falling again. Designed by artist Kathy Azada and featuring the
   photography of Patti Monaghen and Bruce Willems, Secrets is a
   different kind of poetry   book - a book that tells a story not only
   with words, but with moods and with moments and shadows of hope.
   Inspired by the seemingly ever-present San Francisco fog, LaDonna
   Witmer writes about things that live in grey spaces and on the tips
   of tongues. She has published two other books of poems, Shedding the
   Angel Skin in 2000 and a limited edition chapbook called She is a
   Death Star in 2007.

   Paperback, 122 pages, published by This Blank Page Productions, (May,
   2007)
