"Poetry Will Save Your Life: A Memoir" by Jill Bialosky
Our guest is Jill Bialosky, a writer based in NYC who's published several collections of poetry as well as the bestselling memoir, "History of a Suicide: My Sister's Unfinished Life." She joins us to discuss her latest book, an engaging memoir/anthology titled "Poetry Will Save Your Life." Per The Chicago Tribune: "A delightfully hybrid book: part anthology, part critical study, part autobiography.... Candid and canny.... Bialosky's erudite and instructive approach to poetry [is] itself a refreshing tonic." Please note that Ms. Bialosky, who is also an editor at W. W. Norton & Company, will participate in the 2018 Nimrod Write Night and Conference for Readers and Writers, which will happen later this week, on the 19th and 20th, and which you can learn more about here.
