Grove Press has announced it will publish New and Selected Poems by the newly appointed poet laureate Kay Ryan.

"We are proud to already have three of Kay's collections in print and thrilled to make this addition to our list," said Joan Bingham, Ryan's editor and vice president/executive editor at Grove Altantic. "Her appointment is especially exciting for us because Kay's Elephant Rocks was the inaugural book in the Grove Poetry Series begun in 1996."

Along with Elephant Rocks, Ryan is the author of two other books available under the Grove Press imprint: Say Uncle (2000) and The Niagara River (2005).
