Robert Geronimo ’09: Little Maia and the Coral City and Agent 87 and the Black Train (Ascalon Press, 2014)
A successful Kickstarter campaign allowed Geronimo to publish his first solo book, Little Maia and the Coral City, which tells a story entirely in pictures. Through Ascalon Press, he is publishing more books that feature strong female characters overcoming adversity — such as the protagonist of his second work, Agent 87 and the Black Train, whom Geronimo describes as “a cross between Indiana Jones and James Bond.”
Wanda Schweizer Praisner ’54 M’57: Sometimes When Something Is Singing (Antrim House, 2014).
Praisner’s fourth collection of poetry “reflects on a lifetime of close family ties and far-flung travels, with an eye for local color, period detail, the surprise flash of memory,” according to poet Maxine Susman. “She brings an unflinching candor to poems about the death of her son, and her own survival as a wife and mother.”
