Onjana Yawnghwe

March 07th, 2024

A family escapes from Myanmar’s military violence to Thailand, then Canada, carrying nothing but beat-up suitcases on a luggage cart. Onjana Yawnghwe’s third book of poetry, We Follow the River (Caitlin Press $20.00) explores growing up in a foreign land, sifting through family history and grief, and the experience of travelling across cultures and continents to find a home. Yawnghwe’s poetry collection spans two decades and the poems navigate quiet moments, unruly bursts of emotion and self-distillation. Her poems offer an intimate exploration of human complexity, inviting readers to contemplate the essence of identity and belonging. 9781773861388
