Kooser’s most recent book of poetry is Valentines. Beginning in 1986, Kooser wrote a poem for Valentine’s Day and mailed it to 50 of his female friends. Continuing the tradition for the next 21 years, while adding more than 2,000 women to the list, Kooser reflected on love, friendship, and all other aspects of the holiday. To experience the national award-wining poetry, you can read an excerpt from our web site.
Kooser has published many books with the Press, including: Lights on a Ground of Darkness, The Blizzard Voices, and Writing Brave and Free with co-author Steve Cox.
