Here’s to another year of celebrating poetry!
Each book I reviewed in 2021 was a tremendous gift. As we endured a second pandemic year, poets wrote about navigating an unquiet and often frightening world, about Nature, humanity, and relationships, about heredity, abuse, and the rewards of long love.
In these turbulent times, we need poetry and all the arts more than ever. I’m grateful for the words of these poets who put their hearts on the page for all to share.
I’m happy to announce the Sticks & Stones review schedule for 2022:
