Thanku: Poems of Gratitude
Gratitude isn't something we need to save up for a special holiday. What are you grateful for right now, today?
This anthology brings together a diverse group of poets who express gratitude for everything from a puppy to hot cocoa to the sky itself. Each writer uses a different poetic form, and readers will encounter a concrete poem, a sonnet, a pantoum, a sijo and much more.
Contributors include Kimberly Blaeser, Sun Yung Shin, Naomi Shihab Nye, Charles Waters, Janice Scully, Jane Yolen, Traci Sorell, JaNay Brown-Wood, Cynthia Leitich Smith, Margarita Engle and more. Stunning illustrations from Marlena Myles invite close examination, making this a collection to return to and savor again and again.
A portion of the proceeds from this anthology will be donated to We Need Diverse Books.
