One of my good friends, the poet Laura Lionello, has a book out title Panic Kit (buy it here).  Here are reasons why you should read this book (and no I am not getting any cut of sales).

1) Laura is a fantasic poet.
2) Listening to Laura read her poems is amazing.
3) There is a poem titled "Alone at the Edge of a half-mile Pier."  How's that for setting the mood?
4) Laura wrote the line "my mouth alive with sticky spit."
5) If you buy this book, Laura will write more poems and you will have more poems to read.
6) If you don't buy this book, I will bother you every day until you do.
7) Laura and I worked at the same pizza place in high school, but not at the same time.
8) Did I mention Laura is a fantastic poet?
9) You can meet her at the  book-release party at Quenchers Saloon in Chicago on Saturday, September 17th.  See you there
