Here we go: The next Read America Read Project is Saturday, January 27th.
Leave a book for someone
to take anywhere you want. This time, ask two people you know to do this also. This way the project
will grow each month. I would like a book marker to go in every book so people know where they are
coming from. Please e-mail me at the following e-mail address and I will send you an e-mail back
with the book marker for you to print out and cut. Thank you for being a part of this project.
Lets make January 27th great! Send me photos too. I have a list of names of who
participated and as this grows, keep letting me know you are doing this. Thanks a zillion.
You all rock. Lets get America reading!!!!
Thanks so much,

The Sun Eaters a novel by Alex M. Pruteanu
Alex M. Pruteanu is author of novella Short Lean Cuts, and Gears: A Collection (Independent Talent Group, Inc.),
both available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Powell's Books. He has published fiction in Guernica, [PANK],
Specter Literary Magazine, The Prague Revue, The Stockholm Review of Literature, and many others.
The Sun Eaters unravels the story of two brothers in a small village of an Eastern European country just
post World War II. The two boys and a handful of their colorful mates struggle to survive famine, desolation
and destruction, as well as repressive political ideology that has been forced upon their country. In the boys'
battle against what seems like all elements of life-turned-hostile, we discover the beauty of the enduring human
spirit and the coping powers of a child's imagination during difficult times.

Released December 8, 2017:
Rene Schwiesow came to the Boston Poetry Scene through drumming. In a fortuitous alignment of the planets and stars she
met the late, great Mike Amado at a drum circle and the rest is history. She is currently a co-host for the popular
South Shore poetry venue, The Art of Words, where she not only reads poetry and introduces features and open mike
readers, but also is maker of the meatballs served during intermission (recipe is strictly a secret, unless you ask her
nicely). Rene has been published in various publications including Muddy River Poetry Review, City Lights, Ibbettson
Street Press, The Aurorean, and Bagel Bard and Tidepool Poet Anthologies. When she is not writing, reading, or watching
Doctor Who, she can be found with a Tarot deck, aligning chakras with Reiki, or shopping for boots in support of her
obvious shoe fetish.
In this collection of heart echoes, the words reverberate moments strung along the poet's timeline. The poetry is a
showcase of laughter, heartache, growth, letting go, recognition, awareness, friendship, and love. Schwiesow has used
keyboard as paintbrush to create page after page of moving images. May you find your own echoes whispering in the gap
between each word, phrase, and poem that imprints itself upon your mind.
