About East Main Aviary:
“Leigh Anne Hornfeldt’s debut chapbook, East Main Aviary, is a stunning, luminescent collection, carefully wrought with a delicate pain. The pieces contained here reflect the natural landscapes and small communities of northern Kentucky, but don’t be fooled: these poems are shattering in their preciseness. Hornfeldt’s lines will surround you the way “Evening settles/ like dust on a bureau” luring you in to a sacred comfort that is satisfying even as it is devastating, pulling private hymns from your own memories, urging you to “give a name to the newest ache.” ~ Teneice Durrant Delgado, author of Burden of Solace
