This year to celebrate national poetry month, I’m once again participating in the Big Poetry Giveaway! To see a list of other participants + the original post, check out this blog: The Big Poetry Giveaway 2018
To participate in this giveaway, leave a comment with your NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS–also let me know which book you’d prefer! I’ll use a random number generator to choose two winners on April 30th.
Threshing Floor (Jacar Press 2016) by Renee Emerson
I’m giving away a copy of my second book, Threshing Floor, which is a poetic retelling of the book of Ruth from the perspectives of Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz, among others.
“Threshing Floor is a serious book of poems in series. These retellings of the Biblical Naomi are compelling and soulful.”
— Denise Duhamel
“Threshing Floor tells the story of three women, their vulnerability and displacement; it will grip and hold women. But, please God, may the book also be read by men—lots of men—because these poems are models of empathy in a world that sorely needs it.”
— Jeanne Murray Walker, author of Helping the Morning: New and Selected Poems
The second book I’m giving away is a chapbook by a friend and I would only EVER giveaway a copy of this because I have a second copy..
The Education of a Girl by Heather Cadenhead
You can read my full review of her book HERE, and this is a short excerpt from the review: The Education of a Girl, Heather Cadenhead’s second chapbook of poetry, is a search for independence. Self-aware, full of yearning, the poems in this collection examine a woman’s place in society and her straining against that place. The tone of the chapbook is reminiscent of The Awakening by Kate Chopin or To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf.
I still give this chapbook 5 stars!
Good luck and happy poetry month!
