Kate Hanson Foster's Book Named One of the Best of 2011

 Poet Kate Hanson Foster of Groton learned today that her book “Mid Drift” from Loom Press was selected as one of the best  collections of poetry published in Massachusetts in 2011. Mass Book Awards are for books by Massachusetts authors or about  Massachusetts. The book is on the “Must-Reads” list with other works of fiction, non-fiction, and children’s literature and will be  featured on a colorful poster being sent to every public library in the state by the Massachusetts Center for the Book, which  administers the annual Mass Book Awards. Congratulations to Kate. You can order the book at www.loompress.com

 Kate is a graduate of UMass Lowell and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Her poetry has  appeared in California Quarterly, Poet Lore, and elsewhere. Poet Amy Gerstler wrote that Kate’s poems “move with meticulous  grace,” and poet Major Jackson commented that “she is a lyrical thinker who makes thinking sensuous and alluring. Consider  yourself lucky to read her poems.” Many of the poems in this collection are set in Lowell and evoke a complex setting of pain and  redemption, a place whose people find the courage to move forward even when the path is undefined.
