FROM THE FINGER LAKES: A PROSE ANTHOLOGY
From the Finger Lakes: A Prose Anthology, published in 2015, contains the work of some of central New York’s finest writers. Some are nationally recognized––such as Diane Ackerman, Paul West, Alison Lurie, James McConkey––many are locally well-known––Carol Kammen, Kenneth A. McClane, Gene Endres, Katharyn Howd Machan, Leslie Daniels, Brad Edmonson and others––and many are soon-to-be-discovered and will be much-admired for their eloquence, humor, and passion when readers find them in the anthology.
The editors have selected a wide variety of first-rate material, half fiction, half nonfiction whose authors range in age from 23 to 93. Many write about life in the Ithaca area––its varied people, its natural wonders, its quirky lifestyles––and others report on parts of the world less “centrally isolated,” including India, Sri Lanka, New York’s Lower East Side, the American Midwest.
From the Finger Lakes: A Prose Anthology is available at bookstores and other Ithaca shops, as well as on Amazon. Or you can order copies directly from the printer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On November 8th at the Tompkins County Public Library, and on November 15th at Buffalo Street Books, in 2015, Cayuga Lake Books held two book-launch readings, both from 2-5 in the afternoon. The public was cordially invited.
On these occasions, many of the authors read from their work, answered questions from the audience, and signed books for the public. With Ithaca’s enthusiasm for good writing and local authors, these were popular community events, and we very much appreciated that the public came out to support us. The anthology also received a lot of good press and we think that it would make a great present for anyone who loves the Finger Lakes area or good writing.
If you’re looking to purchase the book in person, it’s available at Buffalo Street Books. If, unfortunately, you’re not in the Ithaca area, it’s available on Amazon.
