HEATHER H. THOMAS’ new book Vortex Street (FutureCycle Press, 2018) spirals from the poet’s riverside home across the globe, trailing patterns “behind a poet who stands bluntly amid the fluid of life.” The book includes poems translated into Arabic, Hebrew, Spanish, and Italian and has been praised as a "masterful collection . . . in a compassionate and intimate voice.” Heather lives in Reading, PA, and teaches at Cedar Crest College. Vortex Street is her seventh book.
