Slapering Hol Press Presents Spree MacDonald, winner of the 2016 Slapering Hol Press Chapbook Competition. Sally Bliumis-Dunn, Cindy Beer-Fouy, Peggy Ellsberg, Jennifer Franklin, and Margo Taft Stever will read with MacDonald to celebrate the launch of his chapbook, Milksop Codicil.
Into the & headwaters of hurt is where Spree MacDonald takes us, between branches that overhang and roots that trip, with a jambalaya of words and references that in the end prove the only way out of here. This writer uses his own weaknesses, his blunder toe, to navigate a treacherous landscape, bringing the whole country to bear witness to the swamp living in its belly. At play with sound and music, he charges into this labor hood of Atlantis, this poorly lit paradise. “Here is a spirit, wise, but not jaded, chided, but not overruled. Milksop Codicil is a poetic trance, full of bayou magic, and common sense.” —Mervyn Taylor, author of The Waving Gallery.
