Day 409 - Waiting on Wednesday [43]


Celebrated poet Naomi Shihab Nye brings together the poetry of twenty-five poets under the age of twenty-five. Ranging in style and subject, but all already high-caliber in their artistry, these young voices speak the thoughts, hopes, and concerns of their generation. Featuring an introduction by Nye, this is a collection full of hope, humor, and heartbreak. Features extensive notes on the contributors.


Reason: I used to write poetry - or my version of poetry - way back when and it really sucked when I stopped writing. It's been a very long time since I've read poetry and this sounds like an excellent way to slowly come back into something that I was once very close to.

Cover Discussion: I enjoy the tie-in with the title and the key. Very cute and clever. However, the "25 poets under 25" thing at the top draws away from the cover itself. I think it should have maybe been on the back or incorporated differently.

Time You Let Me In will be released February 23rd!

What are you waiting on this week?
