“Rigby writes with rigorous intensity…She makes intricate lists of surprises, she looks closely at small things, and she draws her imagery together, loading it carefully, letting it mount to flare as the poem ends.”

—The Georgia Review
Paul Zimmer

“The poems in Festival Bone are beautiful, startling, and unsettling. Like any good chapbook, it will whet your appetite and leave you hungry for more.”

—American Book Review
Brian Barker

“Her poems demand that we pay attention to the logic in each image, the intelligence of each phrase…She is a careful craftsman that demands careful reading.”
