Two New Reviews

My review of Without a Map is live at Moondance. Without a Map by Meredith Hall is one of the most beautiful books that I’ve read in the past year. Meredith Hall became pregnant as a teenager and was “shunned” by her community. She writes a gripping story of her adolescence and adulthood in relation to her unplanned pregnancy. I highly recommend this book as an excellent and provocative memoir.

Rosemary Winslow’s book Green Bodies is a lovely first book of poetry published by our local Word Works Press. I’ve reviewed it at Her Circle ezine. The review begins:

Truth-telling is integral to poetry. Putting the truth into language is both a calling and a struggle for poets. In the forty-five poems of Rosemary Winslow’s first collection, Green Bodies, the struggle of language is evident in both form and content.

Check it out and be sure to buy Rosemary’s book.
