 Sarah Gorham is a poet, essayist, and publisher. Her essay collection Study in Perfect won the AMP Award for Creative Nonfiction in 2014. 

Please join us for a reading and booksigning from her new memoir, 

Alpine Apprentice.



" In tones stunningly crisp, rapturous, and sure,

Sarah Gorham has taken the book-length essay

to a place of high art. "

-Mary Cappello             



Chance Devine explores the broadest territory possible, from the orgins of the universe to the speculative, precarious future.

Jeffery Skinner's new collection is equally grounded in the contemporary science of photons, black holes, and climate change

and the uncanny mythology of celestial talk shows, shifting identities, angels, and politicians.

Visionary, wildly unprecictable and often unsettlingly funny, this is a book that matters.

Winner of the Field Poetry Prize - 2016

Sarah Gorham recounts her childhood education as a rebellious, insecure, angry girl shipped overseas to a tiny international school perched on a mountain shelf in Bernese-Oberland, Switzerland. There, boot camp style, she experienced deprivation, acute embarrassment, and keen educational guidance, all in the name of growing up.
