From Ronna Bloom, Mount Sinai Health System’s Poet-In-Residence
The Mount Sinai event is November 2nd at noon – see below
All are welcome!




Dear friends,


I’m delighted, excited, thrilled and a little bit happy to invite you to these fall events for my new book of poems, The More, published by Pedlar Press. I do not yet have it in my hands but if you want to get a copy, connect to the folks at All Lit Up and they’ll send you a note as soon as it’s available. The official press release is below.

For a taste, here are six poems that were published in the last issue of Numero Cinq. 

On the cover of the book is a painting by Mark Rothko. Here, on the All Lit Up blog, is a conversation between my publisher Beth Follett and I about how the cover came to be, and of our relationship working together over the last 18 years. 

I’ll be launching and reading from The More in the coming weeks at Ben McNally’s bookstore, the IFOA and at Mount Sinai Hospital. You’re invited to everything! Come if you can, and say hello. I’d love to see you.
