Copper Canyon Launches First Round of eBooks

By Harriet Staff

The day is here! Copper Canyon has unveiled their first round of poetry eBooks.

From their website:

Through a generous grant from the Paul G. Allen Foundation, and with tremendous technical support from Constellation and Consortium Book Sales and Distribution, Copper Canyon Press is proud to announce the publication of its first eight e-books.

“When Copper Canyon started forty years ago,” Wiegers noted, “our books were printed letterpress, a page or two at a time. While we all are passionate about paper-and-ink books—and will continue to produce them with an attention to classical design and poets’ intentionality—the additional creation of high-quality poetry e-books will ensure that teachers, students, writers, and other readers who share our love of poetry, will have access to it, in whatever way they choose to read.”

“Copper Canyon’s mission is to get poetry out into the world,” says Wiegers. “And e-books are becoming an essential tool to help us meet that mission.”

The first e-books published by Copper Canyon are listed below, and are available through Amazon.com, BN.com, and iTunes:
