I was honored to receive a new collection of poetry, No Ocean Here, by award-winning poet, novelist, and blogger Sweta Srivastava Vikram, to review for Women's History Month (March) and Sexual Assault Awareness Month (May). This book presents 43 poems, many of which are hauntingly heartbreaking narratives of women subjected to violence and opression in various parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
Mailbox Monday is a terrific way to highlight new books and reading-related items. Created by Marcia, who has set up several book blogs as well as a Mailbox Monday blog, this meme has been "on tour" for the past few years. Caitlin from Chaotic Compendiums is hosting Mailbox Monday for the month of March. What new goodies were in your mailbox recently?
