Jessy Randall, archivist and curator of special collections at Colorado College’s Tutt Library, has published “Injecting Dreams into Cows,” a new book of poetry.
The book features typical Randall poems – if Randall poems can be called typical. They’ve been described as sassy, bold, confident, and “they always seem to get the last word,” said one reviewer. An earlier collection of poems, “A Day in Boyland,” was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Other books include “The Wandora Unit,” a young adult novel about poetry nerds in high school, and “Interruptions,” a collection of collaborative poems. Randall’s poems have been hung from trees, made into rock songs by garage bands, used in library advertisements, and sold in gumball machines.
“Injecting Dreams into Cows” was published in September by Red Hen Press.
