Chappy Hour: The Quick Red Fox + Fox Haunts

October 25, 2018 by Tan Light

Much like a tricky fox, Penn Kemp's latest collection  Fox Haunts (Quattro Books) is playful and steeped in mythology. Read the poem "Steal, Stole, Stun" and a longer excerpt from this nature- and literature-inspired collection and sip on a Quick Red Fox cocktail or mocktail (just watch out for that lazy dog).

See more details below
