Fanny Says on NPR Books' list of 'amazing 2015 poetry books'

FannySays_Front_smaller Nickole Brown's forthcoming Fanny Says has been featured on NPR Books' 2015 Poetry Preview. Claiming that "we need poetry even more than 'more than ever,'" reviewer Craig Morgan Teicher recommends a list of 2015 poets that "offers plenty of the balm and fervor we need right now." Here's what the preview says about Fanny Says, out from BOA in April: "Brown's sprawling sophomore collection is a lyrical biography of and tribute to her wise and irreverent southern grandmother. Along with a memorable lesson in the use of the word 'flitter,' what'll stick most is this book's unknown 'word for all things left unbroken, a word for breakable yet unbroken things.'"
