Three new books will be published this year: Who is the Widow's Muse?; The Yasha Poems, and The Solitary. We were very fortunate that Ruth Stone taught creative writing as a visiting faculty member at Old Dominion University during 1989-90.


Ruth Stone read from her poetry at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, October 3, in the Newport News Room of Webb Center.
