Don’t miss Waiting for the Wood Thrush, my first poetry collection, which will be published later this year by Finishing Line Press.
Waiting for the Wood Thrush includes 23 poems united by the themes of love and longing, through the lens of nature.
“Memory’s poems are fully human, and therefore fully real; they are moral poems, in that they lift the reader to a higher level of appreciation for the human world and the world of nature.”
~ Joyce S. Brown, author of the poetry collection Vital Signs, Orchard Street Press and former instructor, Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars
“Ashley Memory’s poems take matters of the soul and make them breathable. She does what a poet must—she takes what hurts in life and makes us laugh, sigh, think, then turn the page. The hurting, of course, doesn’t go away, but Waiting for the Wood Thrush reminds us of the whole brilliant spectrum of emotion that poetry brings us.” ~ Matt Swain, Co-founder and Poetry Editor of Turnpike Magazine
“Witty, wise, overflowing with life and color, grace, and the goodness in our lives. You go from the natural world, to how to see a ghost to an antiques fair to sin town. What joy! What word pleasure! Read and remember, then read again.” ~ Ruth Moose, Pushcart Prize-winning author of two novels, four collections of short stories and six collections of poetry, including Tea and The Librarian.
Waiting for the Wood Thrush will be available for pre-order starting on July 15 and through September 13, with publication on November 8, 2019. Stay tuned to this page for more on how to reserve your copy.
