Elderberry Wine, Vintage 2010 is an anthology of student writing from the Mature Learning Program at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington, offers something for everyone. The pieces in this collection range from Poetry sonnets and haiku, free verse, meter and rhyme; to fiction both fanciful and serious; and nostalgia for the past and visions of the future. Come along on adventures in a swampy town in the American South in the 1930s, an apartment building in the squalid northwest Portland of the 1970s, and the lair of a drug lord in the Caribbean of the 1980s. Exploring all manner of topics, from the natural world to the lives of houses to human life and aging, this collection presents a wide range of unique views and perspectives on life with something for everyone.
