March 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Cedar Creek Publishing will officially launch Sara Robinson's first collection of poetry, TWO LITTLE GIRLS IN A WADING POOL, at the Virginia Festival of the Book on Saturday, March 24, 2012 during the Festival Book Fair at the Charlottesville Omni.

Advance Review:

"In her poem 'Boardwalk,' Sara Robinson describes, with her usual visual acuity and meditative suppleness, citizens of her beloved Elkton, Virginia, who are 'keepers / of voices who sing of things they are / and things they are not.' What is true of her generously imagined townspeople is true of Robinson herself. In this debut volume, she sings of what she is—keen historian of particular people in a particular place, a little girl growing up into visionary adulthood, sympathetic friend and family member, attentive observer of local flora and fauna, both animal and human—and of what she is not, what is not part of her immediate sensory experience but what nevertheless presents itself abundantly to her capable understanding: eruptions of violence, past and present; other landscapes, domestic and foreign; other selfscapes in people she treats with compassionate dignity. Perceptual traveler, efficient narrator, fearless experimenter, Sara Robinson gives us precious treasure here."
