Author Notes


Her best book submitted by redwood on August 3, 2019, 8:48pm Grief, the natural world, horses, feminism ... what's not to love in this artful collection?

My favorite of Ada Limon submitted by dntanzer on August 29, 2019, 12:13am I absolutely loved this collection and its strong connection to nature. Limon's poetry is vivid and emotional.
