News: Whiteout on Poetry Bestseller List

April 3, 2012

Whiteout managed to sneak on the Quill and Quire’s bestseller list for poetry in the two weeks before it was even published. Beaten out by Homer, Roo, Don, Pablo, and Tim, but beating out Irving, Billy, Tupac, Dante, Leonard, Seamus, and Ovid. Not bad… Launching tonight in St. John’s, too. See posts below.
