Has anyone read Olio by Tyehimba Jess, or anything else by this author? He's also up for a National Book Critics Circle Award. There's been a lot of Poetry titles by POC recognized in the last couple of years we'll have to find a way to incorporate that genre in our discussions.

I actually am on my library hold list for Olio.

Yes, it would be great to integrate poetry into our discussions.
A lot of the recent poetry is more "prose-like" than what we know as traditional poetry, so I find that easier to read.

I'm also Rion's (Insurrections) publicist and can send a copy of that title.

Thank you!
