Poetry. Women's Studies. "To be clear, a gay-owned press that doesn't rabble rouse a bit is no friend of mine, and oh, these poems! From the moment we saw Kate Lebo's prayers, we were smitten and so it is a great honor and privilege to collect them into one reasonably priced, ready to give to the people--'may they find their freedom from Cathy McMorris Rodgers' package--and to get them out into the world! Kate Lebo writes openly and honestly. She sings the songs of liberation! She is the hammer of freedom! She bakes pie like a boss and drinks a bit of whiskey. 'I used myself roughly and I / enjoyed it, // drank milk and whiskey / and assumed these pleasures were normal.' Whether it is health care, marriage, the role of women in politics or society, she reminds us and her representative that decisions in the other Washington have real impact here in our own state, no matter the posturing for power and riches Congresswoman Rodgers seeks on the backs of the hard-working women (and men) of her district.
We want you to copy these. We want you to pass them around. We want you to sing them to your neighbors. We want you to VOTE."--Knox Gardner, Publisher of Entre Ríos Books
