Member Henri Bensussen has heard from Finishing Line Press, the publisher of her forthcoming chapbook Earning Colors, that they expect to have books ready by Christmas. Originally, the publication date was to be November 15. The radio show she and member Maureen Eppstein were to have done has been re-scheduled for March 23d. Henri's Gallery reading will be in mid-January rather than Dec. 11th. For those that pre-ordered the book, Henri is hopeful that books will arrive in December. Contact her if you have questions.
