Lee Woodman, formerly of New Hampshire, will be releasing a new collection of poetry in May by Finishing Line Press called Homescapes.

“Home is a relative term, especially if you have grown up overseas,” the publisher said in a statement. “In Homescapes, Lee Woodman takes us from an Indian village to the edge of Tibet to a small town in New Hampshire. An audience with the Dalai Lama touches her spirit; questions from an American high school homeroom teacher challenge her wit. Lee never stops searching for what it means to be American, digs deep to understand her New England roots, and ponders intimate relationships, persistently asking, ‘Where—and what—is home?’ ”

Copies of the book can be pre-ordered from finishinglinepress.com/product/homescapes-by-lee-woodman.

Woodman is winner of the 2020 William Meredith Prize for Poetry. Her first collection of poetry is Mindscapes.

A selection from Homescapes, “Home Leave,” appears below.
