January 09th, 2024

In her collection of linked poems, Lady Bird (Exile Editions $15.95), poet Kerry Gilbert addresses Amelia Earhart at the same age Earhart was when she disappeared more than 80 years ago. Through creative verse, Gilbert explores Earhart’s fate, incorporating conspiracy theories surrounding her death. Beyond the historical context, the poetry delves into the contemporary theme of women’s erasure as they age, highlighting the ongoing societal challenges faced by women. The verses connect two poets across time while engaging in a broader exploration of the persistent issues women confront throughout history. 9781990773105
