REVIEW OF INTIMATE GEOGRAPHY
Read the nice plug for Ishmael Von Heidrick-Barnes' Intimate Geography (after a beautiful rumination about the power of poetry) in the San Diego Free Press. Referenced in the same article as Kunitz, Dillon, Lennon, Rumi, Neruda and other greats!

"[His] rich background synthesizes as he strums his poetry notes..."

Sam Hamod is a contemporary poet of Arab American descent. Since the 1960s, he has published poetry about his country of origin, Lebanon, as well as the Middle East in general. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, he has published ten books and has appeared in more than 200 anthologies of literature worldwide (“Window into Palestine”), Unsettling America serving as only one example.

Tender Art is a duo consisting of soprano Andrea Hörkens and her partner Thomas Roderburg who accompanies her on guitar. Tender Art was created out of Andrea and Thomas's desire to make music together. They were inspired by the lyrics of Ishmael von Heidrick-Barnes.
