Poetry Friday

Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted today by Book Aunt.

My selection is Winter lights : a season in poems & quilts by Anna Grossnickle Hines.

Hines gives voice and vision to the many celebrations of winter in this collection that includes Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Chinese New Year along with various winter scenes.  The quilts are brilliantly colored, beautifully detailed and in many instances intricately constructed.  The book concludes with notes about the construction of the quilts.

Thank you for introducing me to this book! It sounds wonderfully diverse, so much so that I will recommend my daughter, the Kindergarten teacher, ask if she can read it to her class :)
