"Send us a bridge to love, not to hate." What commuter stalled in 'hurry-up-and-wait' traffic could fail to appreciate Joyce Wilson's new collection The Need for a Bridge? These poems, intricate portraits spanning time and distance, celebrate connections. Through the power of poetry, we come to care about the Fore River Bridge and its people and see how this bridge has the capacity to remember." -Alice Kociemba, author of Bourne Bridge
