Book of the Week: Black Horse Running

Clare McCotter created this collection of haiku, tanka and haibun in 2012 (Alba Publishing) and it was immediately recognized for its strong voice, often unusual subject matter, and sureness of diction, all of which perhaps are signs of the author’s varied history as educator, caregiver and academic.

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
