East Slade, Maine by Christopher Lawless captures the mystery of forgotten places, and the history of lost people. Growing up in a small town in Western New York, Lawless realized the importance of family and self-sacrifice. These poems, which combine madness of imagery with sensual simplicity, are his way of memorializing his past and the people who shared his sense of isolation, never forgetting who they were to themselves and to the ones they changed forever. Chris graduated from Champlain College in 2009. His book was published in 2009 with the assistance of CCPI, and launched at the Burlington Book Festival. Click here to buy at Northshire Books.
