The Friends of the Library Anthology



The Friends of the Lewes Public Library proudly announce the release of No Place Like Here, an anthology of Southern Delaware poetry, prose and photographs. The seventy-three poems, stories and essays in this anthology were the result of a writers’ conference sponsored by the Lewes Public Library.

This anthology conveys a vision of what makes Southern Delaware unique. The marvelous photographs accompanying the writers’ work add a beautiful visual context to what makes Southern Delaware so special to residents and visitors alike.

Recently, "No Place Like Here" took First Place, Editing, in the 2012 National Federation of Pen Women Communications Contest.  Congratulations to Billie Travalini and everyone who contributed to this wonderful anthology!

The cost of the Anthology is $19.95.   All proceeds will benefit the Library.  You can purchase your copy of this limited edition anthology at the Library and online through the Friends' Network for Good page.
