The first Stone Gathering reader has exceeded my expectations in its rich mix of poetry, short fiction, and short essays–and in the power, the reach, and the relevance of each individual contribution. I can’t wait for you to hold this book in your hands, to savor its offerings, to know what I mean by short-form literature that is exquisite, welcoming, collectible. You can read more about it here and here.
It strikes me that a subscription to Stone Gathering: A Reader is the perfect gift for a reading mom, a gift that keeps giving all year and–as collectible literature–for years to come. As a mom myself and one who, at my age, doesn’t need anything, receiving a gift this thoughtful, delightful, inspired and inspiring would be the bee’s knees! (Now there’s a dated expression! but one that fell delightfully from my own mother’s lips on a regular basis–rest her very sweet soul).
I feel equally certain the Stone Gathering reader would make an ideal graduation or off-to-college gift: a bit of sustenance, succor, armor for the exciting and challenging road ahead.
The special early bird rate remains available through 5/15 and ordering is seamless. For gift subscriptions, please do fill in your mother’s (or other recipient’s) mailing address, but please put your own email in the space provided, so that you will get the receipt. We’ll send mom a lovely snail mail card announcing your gift.
You’ll find the store and subscription page here.
Thank you! And Happy Mothers Day!
