Welcome to Next Page Press! If this is your first time here, hello! We're happy you found us, and if you're curious, you can learn more about the press and its mission here. We are so excited to let you know that our first title, Ann Hudson's chapbook Glow, is on Pre-Sale. Buy it HERE.
This summer Gretchen Bernabei, author, educator, and friend of Next Page, got a first-look at Hudson's chapbook. She was so taken by the poems that she shared them, along with related teaching strategies, to a group of almost 100 educators. What a happy moment for NPP, having Ann's exquisite poems find an audience that will take these poems into classrooms!
Here's what Gretchen had to say: "I’ve never held in my hands a collection of poems that was an absolute page-turner until Glow. I was glad to have my computer next to me, too. Poem after poem filled me with burning questions. What was Radium Dial? What happened to those girls? Was this dancer real?
This compelling collection of poems could serve as a striking mentor text for teachers who would like their students to research any individual who has changed the world, any time period where humans had to sort out a changed reality, or any invention which gave the world both a blessing and a curse. I can’t wait to share Glow with every teacher I know."
Thanks, Gretchen. We can't wait, too.
