January 11st, 2006 — Jon Andersen
Stomp and Sing is Jon Andersen’s highly-acclaimed debut book of poetry. The poems illuminate the concerns & aspirations of the new working class generation, and serve as an imagistic autobiography. Clear and direct, narrative & lyrical, they take us from mountaintops to local cafes, from lumberyards to town sidewalks, and range in theme from the impact of racism to the consolation of nature. Luis Rodriguez, author of Always Running, writes: “Jon Andersen’s poems sing of a life lived, devoured, explored, and awake. Who writes like this anymore? Oh, for more Jon Andersens in our midst, to remind us we are more complex, nuanced, and meaningful than many are daring to be.” Jon Andersen teaches at E.O. Smith High School in Storrs. His poems have appeared in numerous journals including Connecticut Review, Haight-Ashbury Literary Journal, The Progressive, and Rattle.  (host – Victoria Muñoz )
