ISBN: 0-912592-48-6

Winner of The 2003 Colorado Book Award in Poetry

Available at:  Ashland Bookstore   |  Amazon


Kathryn Winograd's richly lyrical, beautifully descriptive first book of poems charts the passage of a woman caught in the very heart of life, participating in the rhythms of nature, eagerly holding onto what is passing and is past, desperately holding fast to what she most cherishes. Air into Breath is a splendid collection.

- Edward Hirsch


With Air into Breath, Kathryn Winograd announces and enacts new sacraments of transgression.  These poems boldly, dearly cross the borders between humanness and worldliness, ever mindful of the meanings of the crossing.

- Donald Revell
