Casey Poem to Appear in “American Life in Poetry”

The poem “Driving West Through Somerset County” from the collection “And Waking…” (Bottom Dog Press, 2016/ Amazon) has been selected by former US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser to appear in his syndicated column: “American Life in Poetry.” The poem will appear in the column next year.

Kooser’s weekly column, a joint project with the Poetry Foundation and the University of Nebraska, provides newspapers with a free weekly column featuring contemporary American poems as a way to promote poetry within American culture.  Hundreds of newspapers participate in “American Life in Poetry,” and the column is said to have a reach of over 3 million readers worldwide.
