Edisto, My Edisto!, a new book by EvelynAnne Johnson-Neal, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Edisto, My Edisto! is a collection of poems born out of poet EvelynAnne Johnson-Neal's heart. Some poems were inspired while vacationing at Edisto Beach, while others were inspired by events, feelings, or a historically based tale. She encourages you to read these colorful poems aloud while at a family dinner on the beach-especially Edisto Beach! Learn about the turtle ladies and the fire department's beach wheelchairs. Even having never been to the island yourself, Johnson-Neal will transport you there with her lively and intriguing prose.
