A poem by JAMIE STERN is included in Traveler’s Vade Mecum, an anthology edited by Helen Klein Ross. A reading was held Wednesday, November 2, from 6 to 8 PM at the New York Public Library, The Margaret Liebman Berger Forum on the 2nd Floor.

Here’s the Amazon description of the volume by Helen Klein Ross: “The original Traveler’s Vade Mecum, published in 1853, contained thousands of telegrams. Ross chose telegrams as titles for poems solicited from dozens of poets, including Bollingen Prize winner Frank Bidart and former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins to create a digital-age compendium of old-world poetics. Here are lyric poems, language poems, prose poems, found poems, haikus, pantoums, ekphrases, epistolary poems, acrostics, sonnets and mirror sonnets. Demonstrating the range of what poetry can do, this book provides a fascinating glimpse into the habits and social aspects of 19th century America―and shows how we have evolved 163 years later.”
