SIU Press releases two new poetry collections

SIU Press announces the publication of two new collections of poetry: “Glaciology” by Jeffrey Skinner, and “The Laughter of Adam and Eve,” by Jason Sommer.

Skinner’s newest collection explores “the way tenderness and danger inhabit the same world.”  He is the author of several other poetry anthologies, and the editor of two poetry anthologies. 

Sommer’s collection casts new light on familiar characters and stories. His poems explore humor even where it is bitter, the mystery of creation, and what it means to possess the “knowledge of good and evil.”

The SIU Press catalog is available online at
