Of the Carousel: Poems by Burt Rashbaum


Of the Carousel: Poems by Burt Rashbaum, author and operator at the Carousel of Happiness



Burt Rashbaum has the rare privilege of being one of five operators at the Carousel of Happiness, a re-imagining of a 1910 carousel with animals hand-carved by a Vietnam veteran. With ridership approaching 1 million, Rashbaum has had the opportunity to see a wide spectrum of life, and how riders react to the beauty of the carousel. In describing his experiences, he would often say, “I see magic there.” This new book of poems will evoke that rare, almost indescribable magic, and delight Carousel riders everywhere.
