Reviewing Ada Limón’s Latest Poetry Collection

What a phenomenal book.  This was the type of collection that both inspires and humbles the reader.  Of course, after my review was written, it received all sorts of well-deserved accolades, including being a finalist for both the National Book Critics Circle Award and the PEN/Jean Stein Book Award.  I highly encourage everyone to pick up a copy!
