Five Book Club Ideas for Poetry Month
1. Read Coconut by Nisha Patel
Coconut rises fiercely like the sun. These poems bestow light and warmth and the ability to witness the world, but they ask for more than basking; they ask readers to grow and warn that they can be burnt. Above all, Nisha Patel’s work questions and challenges propriety and what it means to be a good woman, second-generation immigrant, daughter, consumer, and lover.
4. Read Tell the Birds Your Body is Not a Gun by Rayanne Haines
This collection contains a visceral narrative that questions our relationship with religion and challenges how we reflect on our own memories of trauma.
