Our latest broadside, designed by local Katie Eberle and printed in Bolinas, was commissioned for Independent Bookstore 2018, a celebration of the continuing vitality of locally owned brick and mortar bookstores. As you'll experience when you read, Ada Limon's poem gets the blood pumping with its inspiring message.

"How to Triumph Like a Girl"
I like the lady horses best,
how they make it all look easy,
like running 40 miles per hour
is as fun as taking a nap, or grass.
I like their lady horse swagger,
after winning. Ears up, girls, ears up!
But mainly, let’s be honest, I like
that they’re ladies. As if this big
dangerous animal is also a part of me,
that somewhere inside the delicate
skin of my body, there pumps
an 8-pound female horse heart,
giant with power, heavy with blood.
Don’t you want to believe it?
Don’t you want to lift my shirt and see
the huge beating genius machine
that thinks, no, it knows,
it’s going to come in first.
