HOMESPUN MERCIES REVIEWED
Many thanks to Dart Frog Books for this recent review of Homespun Mercies: “From friendship to fear- the changing of the seasons to the changing of our clothes- the busyness of life to shoes abandoned on the interstate- Mick Jagger to Annie Oakley- secrets we keep to love we make, Hill is adept at finding meaning and inviting introspection from all corners of life.”
COVER ART SELECTED
‘Release,’ the cover art for DJ’s debut collection of poetry and collage Homespun Mercies, was recently selected for VOTE: A Centennial Celebration exhibit at the Loveland Museum in Loveland, Colorado.
The exhibition opens Saturday, February 8 with a tea reception from 11 am-2 pm and will be on display through Sunday, April 5.
