Famous homes tour in a book

housepoems.jpg

This is the lovely cover of Dan Guillory's new poetry book titled HousePoems. More than a poetry book, this is an interesting collection of poems, histories (short essays) and photos of central Illinois homes and structures and the folks who inhabited them. There’s also a section on the White House and various presidents and first ladies who lived there and on the homes the poet himself occupied.

The 161-page book is available from Mayhaven Publishing for $19.95. Guillory is the author of ten books and is professor emeritus at Millikin University. He also reviewed poetry for Library Journal for 25 years.

Guillory will be reading and signing books at various locations across central Illinois during the summer. The next reading is at Lake Shelbyville Visitor's Center. He will read in Springfield, Ill. at the Vachel Lindsay Home State Historic Site in September.
