Warsan Shire
Description: Warsan Shire has an ability to give simple, beautiful eloquence to the veiled world where sensuality lives in the dominant narrative of Islam. In 'Teaching my mother how to give birth, ' Warsan Shire's debut pamphlet, we witness the unearthing of a poet who finds her way through all preconceptions to strike the heart directly. What she writes represents a refuge for womanhood and for exile, a chant of praise for resilience, a claiming of--and fierce pride in--motherhood with all its joys and challenges.

Charles Simic
Description: A collection of new and selected essays by the Pulitzer Prize-winner and former Poet Laureate. In addition to being a poet, Charles Simic is a prolific and talented essayist. The Life of Images brings together his best prose work written over twenty-five years. A blend of the straightforward, the wry, and the hopeful, the essays in The Life of Images explore subjects ranging from literary criticism to philosophy, photography to Simic's childhood in a war-torn country. Culled from five collections, each work demonstrates the qualities that make Simic's poetry so brilliant yet accessible. Whether he is revealing the influence of literature on his childhood development, pondering the relationship between food and comfort, or elegizing the pull to return to a homeland that no longer exists, the poet shares his distinctive take on the world and offers an intimate look into his mind.
