Back on the Block: Summer Reading List

from remicalbingham.blogspot.com

So, I took a few months off to teach some grad workshops and get married (see the hubby and I trying to dash away in the photo by Rachel Eliza Griffiths above...) but now the summer's looming and I'm ready to dive headfirst back into all things literary. Here are the books I'll be exploring in the months to come:

The Shadow of Sirius by W.S. Merwin (Click the link to hear a great NPR broadcast with Merwin.)

The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation by John F. Baker Jr. (Recommended by a student! -- I'm just excited to know they're still reading after the semester has ended!)

Amorous Shepherd by Dante Micheaux (As an added bonus: Here's the link to Dante's fabulous poem and photo at the Poetry Society of America --not to mention the others featured in the Cave Canem/Ars Poetica project.)

So, what's on your summer reading list??? Any good suggestions?
