Volume 3 is On the Way!
After Trump Sonnets, Volume 1, and Trump Sonnets, Volume 2, Ken Waldman has written Trump Sonnets, Volume 3.
This one is subtitled The International Edition. A crowdfunding campaign began May 15 and continued through July 4.
Funding met the target. Not only will the new book be published in a timely way, but the funding allowed this
dedicated website to get up and running.
Though the Kickstarter campaign is complete, you can still contribute to the project. If you don't want to wait until
January 2019, $25 will get a signed copy of the new book this August, months before its official publication date. $50
and you get signed copies of all three books in the series. $100, you'll get all three books, and a mix of three additional
books and CDs of Ken Waldman's choice. $500? All that and Ken Waldman will come do a solo show that features this
material (read this for more information about that kind of show). $1,000? Ken Waldman will come do a show accompanied
by a friend or two. How to contribute? Contact Ken Waldman for an explanation.
More about this book? Check out the Kickstarter link (here's the full description, and here are all the updates). Immediately
below, responses from three backers who supported the project, and in late August received their books. They are among
this new book's earliest readers. Further below, you'll find the book's cover and a few poems.
"I started with the first book – so very true and sad at the same time. . . . You are a great talent."
"I am glad that your work is out there, and I hope that more and more people discover it and enjoy it like I have."
"I whipped through your Trump Sonnets . . . It was tons of fun to read, while simultaneously pissing me off all over again.
Will talk up your books here in the northeast."
Ken Waldman thanks you all for paying attention to this project! January 7th there's a book release show in New York City.
January 14, Ken will be doing a set in Cambridge MA that will include some of this material.
