Whirlybird Press publishes new anthology of work by Kansas City writers

It's finally here—The Whirlybird Anthology of Kansas City Writers—edited by Vernon Rowe, Maryfrances Wagner, David Ray, and Judy Ray, and released this November by Whirlybird Press. The editors' concept was to bring together contributions and excerpts from writers with a Kansas City connection.
The Whirlybird Anthology of Kansas City Writers presents poems, stories, and memoir selections from 95 writers who have lived or worked in the Kansas City area, many of whom have earned widespread recognition in this country and internationally. 

Poet David Ray, one of the anthology's editors, said, "I'm sure this book will have widespread appeal far beyond its geographic limits. Both the contributors and editors should be proud of every page."
The anthology includes selections by Ernest Hemingway, James Tate, David Owen, Robert Stewart, Hilary Masters, Dan Jaffe, Frank Higgins, Stan Banks, C.W. Gusewelle, Bill Trowbridge, Richard Rhodes, and many more.
Also, it's not a little humbling to be able to add that an excerpt from my current work-in-progress, a memoir of my late son Francis's life, is included in this collection.
The book lists for $15.00. To order click here or email whirlybirdkcanthology@gmail.com
