My poetry chapbook The Fairy Tales Mammals Tell arrived in stores in April. Fairy tale expert Maria Tatar has written of the book, “Elisabeth McKetta taps fairy tales, and, presto, they transform themselves into living things that reach out and tug at us, reminding us of the exquisite fragility in ‘once upon a time.'” The book is published through Monkey Puzzle Press.
