Sally Ito launches Alert to Glory

Making awareness into language is the act that binds the elements of Sally Ito’s newest collection of poetry, Alert to Glory. Whether the focus is on child-rearing, biblical texts, or on creativity itself, Ito discerns the moment in which the word might become wondrous – moments when the mind-bell is struck dumb, and the hollow fills with shuddering sound, agog with itself. Ito’s images ring with profundity in clear, fearless language that seeks to connect the reader with the soul’s capacity to sense the divine through gifts of awareness and wonder. _______ Praise for Sally Ito: Sound the trumpets! Sally Ito’s Alert to Glory is a clarion call to “alertness and watching which is the poet’s / constant state.” These well-crafted poems arouse us love of the natural world as well as the everyday domestic amazements. --Susan McCaslin, author of Demeter Goes Skydiving (University of Alberta Press) ________ Sally Ito is a writer, editor, and translator living in Winnipeg with her husband and two children. To express a deep abiding love for things ‘visible and invisible’ is what she aspires to in writing her poetry; failing and yet ever striving is the process through which she hopes one day to arrive.
