The winner of this year's ASPS Book of the Year is Tribal Markings, written by Jerri Beck. The judge wrote the following about the book. " This is the kind of poetry for which poetry was invented;to communicate. Word pictures painted with great skill and feeling. Each poem tells a story and keeps you turning the pages looking forward to the next one." We wish to congratulate Jerri on a job well done! Also, to all the poets who published books this year, congratulations to you as well. Keep writing!
