Graduation Gift Guide by blogger Kelly Reci includes two poetry books by Janet Ruth Heller

In her Graduation Gift Guide, blogger Kelly Reci has included two poetry books by Janet Ruth Heller, Exodus (WordTech Editions, 2014) and Folk Concert: Changing Times (Anaphora Literary Press, 2012).

Folk Concert concerns the journey of becoming a woman during difficult times. Themes include feminism, love relationships, college teaching, nature, psychotherapy, travel, the anti-Vietnam War movement, family, the life of an artist/entertainer/writer, and music. You can order Folk Concert at the following link: http://www.amazon.com/Folk-Concert-Janet-Ruth-Heller/dp/1937536262/

The poems in Exodus by Janet Ruth Heller are modern re-interpretations and psychological explorations of the people and events in the Bible. A central metaphor is the exodus from Egypt, which represents the journeys that people make: trying new experiences, leaving a bad relationship, finding a new job, taking risks. Many of the poems are dramatic monologues from the perspective of a character in the Scriptures.

You can order Exodus from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Exodus-Janet-Ruth-Heller/dp/1625490615 or from Barnes & Noble http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/exodus-janet-ruth-heller/1117495115?ean=9781625490612
