Many of you have met Molly Brown in Square Books or around town, or at the reading with her parents, John Gregory and Carrie Brown this past July, and now we have the splendid pleasure of hosting a reading from her first book, winner of the 2016 Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize.

— From Richard's 2017 Picks

Description


Haunted by the voices of those committed to the notorious Virginia State Colony, epicenter of the American eugenics movement in the first half of the twentieth century, this evocative debut marks the emergence of a poet of exceptional poise and compassion, who grew up in the shadow of the Colony itself.
