"Take my word for it -- this new book by Connie Wanek is outstanding, and some of the poems will stick with you for the rest of your life."

On Speaking Terms

Connie Wanek has been writing since her hand could hold a pencil. She is the author of three books of poetry, most recently On Speaking Terms from Copper Canyon Press (2010), and a small book of prose, Summer Cars. United States Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser, named her a Witter Bynner Fellow of the Library of Congress in 2006.
