Atlanta poet Red Summer is a force to be reckoned with.
Powerful in person as well as in print, Red Summer is sweet, stunningly stellar, and raw...in truth telling. In her unforgettable new poetry collection, RAW SUGAR, she captures what it means to be human and, most importantly, female in America and around the globe. Her work reminds us to be the very best we can be in the face of poor politics, bad society and parties gone astray. She heralds fearlessness. She shines a light on situations that others sweep under the carpet. She is an undeniable Presence on the world's poetic stage, and she will not suffer anyone to deny herself to make someone else look large, for by her life, she leads the way.
I received my copy of RAW SUGAR in August. I'd consumed it by September. Not because it was difficult to read or finish, but because I could not swallow it. It required sipping. Not to miss a single word hastily imbibed. Red Summer is the sort of poet one cherishes.
The book is shimmering art. Don't miss it. Get your copy tonight and stand in the flow of blessings.
Loving all things red....
