Nonfiction Book Review: April is National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month!

The newest episode of Nonfiction Book Report is available on the Library’s YouTube Channel. This April, Natalie and I chat Newish Noteworthy Nonfiction (but make it poetry) with our special guest, Kristina. To celebrate National Poetry Month, we each report on a book of poetry.  Kristina gets meta with her own poetry-notes-poem while sharing Remember Love by Cleo Wade. Wade is a former professional model, a creator of public art, and is a NYT Bestselling author of four books. cover of couplets by maggie millner cover of weaving sundown in a scarlet light by joy harjo cover of remember love by cleo wade

I talk “greatest hits” while sharing Weaving Sundown in a scarlet light: 50 Poems for 50 Years by Joy Harjo. Harjo served as the 23rd United States Poet Laureate from 2019 to 2022. Her long career as an author, poet, musician, and playwright has won her a storied number of awards. 

Natalie talks about poetry that reads like fiction with Couplets: A Love Story by Maggie Millner.  Millner’s poetry has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, POETRY, The Nation, and other publications.
