How to Listen to Our Books

We are proud to provide audio for all of our books. Listen to the poets read their work and hear music or see films specifically commissioned for certain titles.

Please find the password located at the back of your purchased book to access these downloads. Scroll to the book you have purchased, click on the link, enter the password (be sure to use all caps), and then click the download button that appears.

For our first three books, download files for your device without purchasing the book.

We also maintain a lively Soundcloud page with tracks from all our books as well as other audio files such as outtakes from the recording sessions and extras from live performances of our authors.

Listen to her read several of the essays in Ensō, here Michael Stipe of R.E.M. read haiku, hear songs influenced by her work, the sound installation “Splintered” as well as videos from several of her projections.

Seven Prayers to Cathy McMorris Rodgers

It’s all hands on deck to get the country we deserve— enough with the immoral hypocrites trying to control our bodies, our love, and our livelihoods while they look the other way from the festering mobster at the top, the gun money, the pharma money, the barrels and barrels of money!

It is with urgency we invite you to listen and SHARE for free the voice of Kate Lebo— her reasonable, bright voice clearly taking to task her representative, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, of Washington State’s Fifth Congressional District.

This download is FREE.  We have also posted the entire set on Soundcloud if that makes it easier for you share our indignity— but also her joy, her humor and our hope for a new day for Eastern Washington!
