Local Publishes Book of Poetry


Born in Boston, Joe Leary, grew up in Franklin, MA., lives there still. His non- literary experience includes service as a Marine, FBI agent, and a Periodontist, and less visible, but nevertheless important work eg., floor washer, mill worker, grocery clerk ...

Joe’s poems shine with appreciation and affection for the people and animals that make up his world, a world which does not stop surprising him with its wonders.

Lyrical and composed with a storyteller’s flair, these poems invite us to consider and re-consider our own lives, to see ourselves within history both personal and shared, and to approach the complexities of relationships with tenderness andcare. Readers will encounter a fine mind and a true heart on every page of this beautifully illustrated collection, along with pleasure, humor, and vitality.
