We are proud to honor the legacy of the great BOA—and American—poet, Lucille Clifton. In September 2020, BOA will publish How to Carry Water: Selected Poems of Lucille Clifton. This crucial addition to Lucille Clifton’s published works will be compiled and introduced by distinguished younger BOA poet Aracelis Girmay.
The Lannan Foundation has generously provided a $40,000 challenge grant in support of the publication of How to Carry Water: Selected Poems of Lucille Clifton! Every dollar you donate will be matched as soon as we reach our $40,000 goal. Please help us get there!
As a project supporter, your name will be listed on BOA's website. Supporters who contribute $150-$499 will be listed on the colophon page of How to Carry Water: Selected Poems of Lucille Clifton. Supporters of $500 or above will be listed as major donors on the colophon page.
