#TPQ5: CARLA CHERRY

Every Watering Word – Tanya Manning-Yarde

Her poetry is meaningful and full of powerful imagery.

Shake Loose My Skin – Sonia Sanchez

I just love the heft of her words, especially in “Wounded in the House of a Friend”! She’s a master!

Ego Tripping – Nikki Giovanni

This book has some of my favorite poems of all time, such as “”ego tripping”” and “”nikki rosa””.”

Selected Poems – Gwendolyn Brooks

She is a literary master!

bone – Yrsa Daley-Ward

She has a powerful clear voice with imagery that rocks you to your core.
