Celebrate the writing published by Stillhouse Press, including works of poet Carmen Gillespie and the memoirist team of Anna Leahy and Douglas Dechow. Gillespie recreates the trials of Sally Hemings and other slaves of Thomas Jefferson’s plantation through lyrical dramatization in her latest collection, The Ghosts of Monticello. Leahy and Dechow celebrate their love for eachother and outer space in their book, Generation Space. This collaboration is described as “part memoir and part homage to the unquenchable thirst of exploration,” with Leahy and Dechow writing alternating chapters.
