    Have You Seen This Man?
    (Sibling Rivalry Press).

    Spring Sonnets
    (Indolent Books)

    Drawing on his time in the Pennsylvania mountains, and in New York's Lower East Side, Don Yorty's Spring Sonnets, steeped in conviction and experience, can't fail to lift readers to new levels of appreciation and understanding for life and the happy accident of our participation in it.

    Have You Seen This Man? is a collection of poems by the late San Francisco poet Karl Tierney, assembled by his literary executor, Philadelphia poet Jim Cory. Jim Cory will talk about Karl, and read from this book, published 25 years after the poet, sick with AIDS, took his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge.
