Poet Peter Yeager Meet & Greet and Signing at Rebel Heart Books

April 8, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Jacksonville resident Peter E. Yeager recently published Searching for Sanctuary: The Journey Home. Yeager’s poems track his life from growing up in New Jersey through retirement in Oregon. Poet and poetry editor Amy Miller calls the book, “part poetic memoir, part travelogue of the soul.”

With emotional honesty, Peter explores family, friendships, courtship, marriage, divorce, and re-marriage; marvels at natural wonders; and pokes at human foibles. Yeager’s verse unlocks faith and nature and marks our changing culture. He also praises other poets and their poems.

Award-winning poet Luci Shaw finds some of the poems, “quietly meditative” and many “crackling with specific detail and sense impressions.” The book is available locally at Rebel Heart Books and Art Presence Art Center.

April is National Poetry Month. Yeager will do a meet & greet and signing at Rebel Heart Books, April 8, 2-4pm, and a poetry reading and signing at Art Presence Art Center, April 29, 2-4pm.

Peter E. Yeager holds degrees in English and Law from Rutgers. He can be reached at
