Bookish in the Mitten

Book reviews, book recommendations, book talk, and a little knitting

I’ve been struggling with the perfect next post featuring a Poet Laureate, waiting for that connection that transcends words. I’m glad I waited; in the reading below, Juan Felipe Herrera speaks past my ears to my heart. Maybe he will do the same for you, and then maybe you will want more. He speaks for, affirms, and inspires many, through poetry, cartoon work, and children’s books. You can read more about his life HERE.

Below, Herrera recites again his inaugural reading as Poet Laureate (2015-2017). Allow time and quiet space while you listen.  As always, be safe and be well.
