Contemporary Poetry Section at Ryerss Continues to Grow

IMG_0364The contemporary poetry section at Ryerss Museum and Library has doubled in size over the last few months. Books in this section are donated by The Fox Chase Review after completing book reviews and by poets/writers reading at The Fox Chase Reading Series. Books submitted for review at FCR that are not reviewed are also donated to the CPS at Ryerss. Staff reviewers who do not live in the area retain copies of books they receive.

Our book review policy is at this link: https://foxchasereview.wordpress.com/2012/08/22/2472/

You can read book reviews at FCR at this link: https://foxchasereview.wordpress.com/category/book-reviews/
