Happy release day to Sarah Kennedy, whose new book, How To Find a Husband, is officially for sale now!

In 1985, Wendy Stehling offered up a day by day guide to finding love in her book titled How To Find A Husband In 30 Days. After finding Stehling’s book buried at a thrift store, Sarah Kennedy’s first collection of poems, How To Find A Husband, is part of a larger performance project involving following and documenting this guide. Utilizing corresponding partial photographs from her parents personal archives to create a planned dialogue between the written and the visual, the goal of the overall project boils down to: can intimacy be forced, planned, or controlled?

Sarah Kennedy is a printmaker, sculptor, and scorpio living in Athens, GA.

How To Find a Husband reads as a gossamer yet temporal choose-your-own-adventure manual which buries its hands into the cognitive dissonance of conjugality, all the while your mother’s voice reminding you that the past is speculative at best, and that the future has already happened.” -Kristine Leschper, artist and musician in Mothers

“A squirrelish poem with speeding heart, turning and flipping alongside radiant squares of nostalgia.” – Rachel B. Glaser, author of Hairdo and Pee on Water

“This little book is a bit haunting… the photos often cut off just before they’d become recognizable, and the poems are spare and feel disembodied as well. You may have the sensation you’ve encountered this object before in a life you can’t quite remember. In any case, it is an artifact that demands a close examination.” – Kimmy Walters, author of Uptalk and Killer

it’s my party is the strawberry scented glitter roller of poetry, if tween cosmetics bought at Claire’s had an anxiety disorder. It follows a year in a neurotic girl’s lifelong search for serenity and her occasional acceptance that happiness is not an experience that reaches a terminus, but ephemeral like a single bite of ice cream cake.

Izzy Leslie is a writer and digital artist from Portland, Oregon. She can be found on Twitter @badplantmom. She has no chill.

Very contemporary, very internet and very femme! Izzy’s poems create the dizzying sensation of riding top-down in a pink convertible for the first time. Her poems are present, heartfelt and invigorating; the dream palace where the internet and poetry meet. – Kate Durbin, writer, digital and performance artist

izzy leslie’s “it’s my party” is rose-gold effervescent. it is sand stuck to a tanning thigh at the beach. ‘this baroque romantic daze. i’m barf’ is one of the best lines i’ve read in a while; ‘like when the music cuts and we can hear how loud we were under it.’ is another. read this book if you miss the beach or your partner or the color purple or anything at all. 🙂 – Shy Watson, author of Cheap Yellow

Like sitting in the sun, crying and feeling weird while biting into a ripe peach, its my party is a sweet, lush gem of honest + beautiful poetry. – Simon DeFeo, editor, glo worm press

It’s my party is a powerful and calm book that is dense with imagery and feelings. Inspiring poems! – Christian Patterson, author of an alternate reality where Mello Yello is more popular than Mtn Dew
