Announcing new chapbook by Li-Young Lee

BOA Editions is thrilled to announce that, in honor of our 40th anniversary, we will be releasing The Word from His Song, a limited edition chapbook of new poems by Li-Young Lee!

The chapbook is the eleventh installment in the BOA Pamphlet Series, which began in 1978 and has seen the publication of such poets as Donald Hall, Robert Bly, David Ignatow, Louis Simpson, W.D. Snodgrass, and Lucille Clifton.

The Word from His Song features eight new poems by Li-Young Lee, bound together with a beautifully designed letterpress cover.

Publisher Peter Conners says, "Since the publication of his debut collection, Rose (BOA Editions, 1986), Li-Young Lee has remained a singular, vital figure in American poetry. Because the publication and promotion of his works has been a focus of BOA’s efforts for the past 30 years, it feels fitting that on the 40th anniversary of the press, we share a selection of Li-Young Lee’s newest work in a beautiful, collectible chapbook."

To be released in Spring 2016, the special edition chapbook will make its debut appearance at the AWP 2016 Conference in Los Angeles, where Li-Young Lee will have a book signing and participate in the BOA Editions 40th Anniversary Celebration reading. Because this is a limited edition publication, the chapbook will be sold exclusively through the BOA Bookstore (April 2016) and at BOA's AWP Bookfair booths (800 & 802).

A work of art in every sense, this limited edition publication will be a must-have collectible for poetry readers everywhere.
