From the Milkweed Archive at the Upper Midwest Literary Archives, here are the first three invitations to the Book Lovers Ball from 2000, 2001, and 2002. Just one more week until Milkweed’s 2017 Book Lovers Ball!
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of a second collection of poems by the late Max Ritvo, the celebrated author of Four Reincarnations, which the New York Times Book Review called “good-humored, appealingly sly, and surprisingly whimsical.”
When Milkweed Editions invited my thoughts on cover design for Virgin, I sent them a Pinterest page with visual influences: Victorian pharmaceutical advertisements, turn of the century women’s magazine covers, art nouveau color palettes, autochromes, and vintage illustrations of flora and fauna (mostly cacti)—all motifs of highly polarized femininity that I was trying to capture and reconsider.
We are pleased to announce that Jos Charles has been named one of five winners of the 2017 National Poetry Series. feeld was selected by Fady Joudah and will be published in September 2018 by Milkweed Editions.
