Due to Prolific’s impressive distribution chain, thousands of booksellers all over the world will soon be listing Waiting for the Light to Change.

Scott Ruescher goes back into the past like a man walking through walls and there finds the things that signify. The details, the atmospheres so full of our younger wanting. Had we but known. His long lines deliver the most bittersweet tones, playing the now against the then, and letting the implicit sadness of bygone lives throw a shadowy depth behind every new moment.”  ~Sven Birkerts, author of The Gutenberg Elegies: The Fate of Reading in an Electronic Age

Scott Ruescher has won recent annual-contest prizes from Able Muse, Poetry Quarterly, and the New England Poetry Club. His chapbooks include Sidewalk Tectonics and Perfect Memory—the former documenting a road-trip from Lincoln’s birthplace in Hodgenville, Kentucky, the latter documenting more of that same trip as well as adventures in such places as Central Ohio, Central America, and Central Square, Cambridge. For 15 years he has been administrating the Arts in Education program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and teaching part-time in the Boston University Prison Education Program
