27 Threats to Everyday Life
As humans we're afraid of so much, but our fears are really nothing compared to the myriad of hidden dangers of life. This book examines 27 things we could add to our lists of reasons not to get out of bed in the morning, but somehow we still get up, make the coffee, and go about our lives anyway. Semi-finalist in the 2021 New Women's Voices Chapbook Competition from Finishing Line Press, the debut poetry chapbook, 27 Threats to Everyday Life, by Montana writer Anne Holub examines how we live where even small dangers -- a bridge, a bee, a cigarette - can spell catastrophe. The collection includes the poem "Mudslides," which was honored as runner-up in the 2022 Mountain West Writers Contest, by the Western Humanities Review.
