Chicago writer/publisher releases new book on Poetry

Inspired by Carl Sandburg, Studs Terkel and Nelson Algren, Chicagoan Sam Kuraishi was moved into writing and poetry.

His new book "Alone Under the Prairie Moon" is a collection of poems reflecting his experiences traveling through the prairies of Illinois and the Midwest.

The book is a fun and easy read. It can be inspiring, too. Many Arab Americans and Middle Eastern writers turn towards poetry as the favored form of writing style. Kuraishi, a longtime former magazine publisher in Chicago and writer, has much experience that he shares in a simplistic yet moving style.

Published by Metra Press, Chicago. For more informatio or to order the book, go to
