New Book Of Poetry By Eric Lochridge

A new book of poetry by Black Hills native Eric Lochridge is now on the shelves. Lochridge covered arts and music at the Rapid City Journal for 17 years before his recent move to Bellingham, Washington. "Real Boy Blues" is the second book of poems to be published. His work has also appeared in several journals. Lochridge describes his poems as a pursuit of the universal connections, including those between fathers and children, husbands and wives, and God and humanity. South Dakota's Poet Laureate David Allan Evans gives Lochridge's work praise for its range and variety and for strong images that shift between the real and surreal.
