My #FridayReads: Bright Dead Things

Bright Dead Things

This year the gap between the end of L’s school day and the end of the Gnome’s is long, so most days L has about an hour to run around the playground. Sometimes I bring work to do, and sometimes I space out, but usually I have some time to read. Lately I’ve been reading Ada Limón’s Bright Dead Things at the playground. I was lucky enough to discuss the first poem in the collection (a Pushcart Prize–winner) with other Writers Studio students when I taught Craft Class for the first time earlier this month. The title of the poem is “How to Triumph Like a Girl,” so of course you want to read it, right?

(Next month, my Writers Studio colleague Lisa Bellamy will be teaching the whole book, so yay.)
