A book of poems by North Country Public Radio Web Manager Dale Hobson has been published by FootHills Publishing. A Drop of Ink is his first full-length collection of poetry.
In addition to a blog, where he occasionally writes about poetry, Hobson created and edits Books by Email, a serial presentation of complete new and forthcoming books by authors of the region. He hosts an occasional broadcast/podcast feature on North Country Public Radio, "Giving Voice," showcasing poets in performance and interview; is an occasional co-host of Readers & Writers on the Air, a monthly call-in program on contemporary literature; and writes a weekly column for the NCPR newsletter The Listening Post. Previous publications include the chapbooks Nickelodeon, Second Growth and The Water I Carry.
The book also includes illustrations reproduced from original wood engravings by Greg Lago of Clayton, New York.
