Engagement Calendar - poems by Mary Aird Rutherford: The poems in this collection are a voyage of self-discovery. They are poems of disclosure, of exposure, of allowing one’s self to be vulnerable, of telling truths. Engagement Calendar documents a personal journey through many decades; it is a book about the territory of family life, and it speaks to the many experiences that make up an individual’s life.$18.95
