Places I Was Dreaming

by Loren Graham

Places I Was Dreaming by Loren Graham

“These are themes and poems that will resonate with many readers.”
—William V. Davis

About the Book

Places I Was Dreaming is a beautifully presented study in poetic tone and the function of story that introduces us to a plucky boy living in rural poverty. The book follows him from preschool through his third grade winter, showing us his life in an extended family of storytellers in which everyone talks at the same time and the lack of money is an ever-present threat that even a child cannot help but be aware of.
