New Book! Commune Of The Golden Sun by Miriam Sagan


"The Commune of the Golden Sun had been founded in the last century as part of the back-to-land hippie movement. The founders were idealists, egalitarians. Dozens of communes had sprung up in the counterculture seemingly overnight, like mushrooms. And then died off just as quickly. But Golden has survived for almost a hundred years. . ."

"No one can see the future. Sometimes I think I can’t even really see the past."

Miriam Sagan is the author of over thirty books of poetry, fiction, and memoir. Her most recent include 
Border Crossing (Cholla Needles, 2022), Start Again (Red Mountain, 2022), and Star Gazing (Cholla Needles, 2020). Her haiku mentor was Elizabeth Searle Lamb and Miriam edited Elizabeth’s collected work, Across The Wind Harp (La Alameda Press, 1999).

Miriam has been a writer in residence in four national parks, Yaddo, MacDowell, Gullkistan in Iceland, Kura Studio in Japan, and other interesting places. She founded and directed the creative writing program at Santa Fe Community College.
