April is National Poetry Month!
Although poetry is not easy read in our age of lightning-fast communications and instant gratification, it is an important way of learning to slow down and pay attention to the beauty and the brokenness of the world around us.
We all would do well to infuse our lives with more poetry!
Here are 10 new poetry books that will be released in 2017 and that we are super-excited about!
(Including collections by Christian Wiman, Mary Oliver, Tania Runyan, and MORE)

Penguin Press, October 2017
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mary Oliver presents a personal selection of her best work in this definitive collection spanning more than five decades of her esteemed literary career.
Throughout her celebrated career, Mary Oliver has touched countless readers with her brilliantly crafted verse, expounding on her love for the physical world and the powerful bonds between all living things. Identified as “far and away, this country’s best selling poet” by Dwight Garner, she now returns with a stunning and definitive collection of her writing from the last fifty years.
Carefully curated, these 200 plus poems feature Oliver’s work from her very first book of poetry, No Voyage and Other Poems, published in 1963 at the age of 28, through her most recent collection, Felicity, published in 2015. This timeless volume, arranged by Oliver herself, showcases the beloved poet at her edifying best. Within these pages, she provides us with an extraordinary and invaluable collection of her passionate, perceptive, and much-treasured observations of the natural world.
