Co-editors Bonnie Omer Johnson and Kimberly Crum, announce the upcoming publication of The Boom Project: Voices of a Generation—a collection of stories, essays and poems by writers, born between 1946 and 1964, who have lived (or are living now) in communities along the Ohio River, between Pittsburgh, PA and Cairo, ILL.
In this collection, readers will find writing that is provocative, lush, witty, accessible and universal. More than forty writers speak on a variety of topics—the river, home, cultural and historical events, coming of age and the coming of aging. Some writers have extensive publishing histories; for others, this is their first publication. All speak in voices that will resound.
