Hot off the Press

Big Thicket BluesNatalie Giarratano's Big Thicket Blues, is a collection of poems and is available now for pre-order. The book will be released later this month. "Big Thicket Blues is a siren’s song. Giarratano understands the bewitching, seductive music of words, and while one reads each poem—poems of social justice, poems of domestic despair—the dangerous truth of them eludes you. Reader, spend time with these poems at your peril because the cutting truth lingers long after the music fades."
-TJ Jarrett, author of Zion. See more member books in our library
