Hi everyone! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I hope that all of your December holidays went well and I hope that you’re enjoying this mild winter (if you live in Ithaca, that is. If you live anywhere else, I hope that you’re enjoying the local weather!). I just wanted to share some of the positive reviews that From the Finger Lakes: A Prose Anthology has received.
The first review was published in the November 9th issue of Tompkins Weekly:
Wrolstad perfectly encapsules the whole point of the anthology, which is to celebrate the Finger Lakes region and all of the amazing writers that have spent a significant part of their lives here.
There is also a review in the 2016 January/February issue of Cornell Alumni Magazine:
While this review focuses on Cornell alumni and professors (which makes sense), it does show the high level of writing showcased in the book. Everyone can say just how sophisticated the writing is, but the fact that the magazine for Cornell alums gives the anthology a nice review shows that what everyone saying is true.
The final review that I wanted to showcase is one that was published in the January 27, 2016 issue of the Ithaca Times. It’s a full page, so it’s too big to post here, but again, that shows how much the reviewer enjoyed the text. He does point out a couple of issues with some of the authors that the editors chose to include in the text, but even still, the review is a positive one.
So now I’ve proven that I’m not the only person who enjoys From the Finger Lakes: A Prose Anthology! I hope that I’ve convinced you to give the book a chance. And don’t worry, there is other blog content coming!
