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.'"
