    Kathryn Stripling Byer - When she died suddenly from lymphoma in June 2017, Kathryn Stripling Byer had just completed her seventh, and what would be her last, collection of poetry, Trawling the Silences. It is a book of great beauty and heartbreak, revisiting all her important themes - family and ancestry, the natural world, the inevitable process of aging and death, and the pressing issues of environmental degradation, racism, and international conflict - with an urgency that seems, in retrospect, to have come from an awareness about what fate awaited her.

    Jenny Lewis relocates Gilgamesh to its earlier, oral roots in a Sumerian society where men and women were more equal, the reigning deity of Gilgamesh’s city, Uruk, was female (Inanna), only women were allowed to brew beer and keep taverns and women had their own language - emesal. With this shift of emphasis, Lewis captures the powerful allure of the world’s oldest poem and gives it a fresh dynamic while creating a fast-paced narrative for a new generation of listeners.

    In The Gilded Auction Block, the acclaimed poet Shane McCrae considers the present moment in America on its own terms as well as for what it says about the American project and Americans themselves. In the audiobook’s four sections, McCrae alternately responds directly to Donald Trump and contextualizes him historically and personally, exploding the illusions of freedom of both black and white Americans. This is a moving, incisive, and frightening exploration of both the legacy and the current state of white supremacy in this country.

    The Perseverance is the remarkable debut book by British-Jamaican poet Raymond Antrobus. Ranging across history and continents, these poems operate in the spaces in between, their haunting lyrics creating new, hybrid territories. The Perseverance is a book of loss, contested language, and praise, where elegies for the poet’s father sit alongside meditations on the d/Deaf experience.

    A journal of my life this year as I go about my life to church, to work, to teaching, to play, and to visiting friends. The first chapter is a story of the spring. The second chapter is like a sketchbook or a glimpse into a journal. There are reflections and prayers and wishes. The ideas from church are ideas I heard from the priests. It is really paraphrased versus a direct quotation. And some of the biblical quotes I used are used in the poem I wrote. The second chapter is about the summer of 2018 and about some of the things I went through.
