HOLY CRAP! It's LEMON HOUND, then LEMON HOUND, then LEMON HOUND again! 

Sina Queyras's AMAZING new book LEMON HOUND has just won the Lambda Literary Award, and has ALSO just won the Pat Lowther Award, and she has ALSO just been granted a residency in Calgary!

Here's about the residency:
The University of Calgary's Markin-Flanagan Distinguished Writers Program in the Faculty of Humanities today announced that Sina Queyras is the 2007-2008 Markin-Flanagan Canadian Writer-in-Residence. Her residency begins at the University of Calgary on August 15, 2007, and runs until June 15, 2008.

If you don't own LEMON HOUND let me tell you, BELIEVE THE HYPE! It's fucking great! The links above should lead the way. There's also her poetry in EOAGH (poems she wrote while living here in Philly), and she also read at the Philly launch for EOAGH, which should be online any day now.

CONGRATULATIONS SINA! IT'S EXCITING TO SEE AVANT GARDE POETRY MAKING SUCH WAVES! Especially with the Lambda, I mean, WOW THEY FINALLY WOKE UP!

One of your fans,
CAConrad
p.s. her blog is also called LEMON HOUND, and some day very soon she's going to post an interview she recently did with (the one and only!) Zoe Strauss!
