Lenore has published two collections of her poetry. _The Love Book_ (San
Francisco: The Stolen Paper Review Editions, 1966) occasioned her celebrated
obscenity trial in 1966. A copy is archived in the San Francisco Public
Library's Special Collections Dep't., in the San Francisco Hippies
collection, Box 2, Folder: "The Love Book." Her second is entitled, _Word
Alchemy_ (New York: Grove Press, 1967) and also long out-of-print. You
should be able to obtain it via interlibrary loan. Copies of it show up
from time to time in used book stores. Most of her subsequent work has
appeared in little magazines. She has been working on a third book for
quite some time now.
