Parable of Hide and Seek
Chad Sweeney's third book of poems, Parable of Hide and Seek, is being published by Alice James Books this September. A book release reading will take place on October 14 at the Kalamazoo Public Library. Also Chad recently signed a contract with White Pine Press to publish his book of translations next year (from the Farsi with Mojdeh Marashi), The Art of Stepping Through Time: Selected Poems of H.E. Sayeh, with the support of grants from the Witter Bynner Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the San Francisco Arts Council. Chad's new poems are forthcoming in American Poetry Review, Hayden's Ferry, Cincinnati Review and elsewhere. And some personal news: on May 31 Chad's and Jennifer's baby son Liam Greenleaf Sweeney was born.
