Book Recommendations from the University Libraries Collection

Enjoying poetry was something that I struggled with for years. Once and awhile I might come across a poem I liked, but it never seemed like me and poetry would connect long term. Until the year of poetry. Where I was working I ended up reading a lot of new poets and I saw a path for me and poetry. These days I am finding it harder to read books, after creating this list I realized I want to return to poetry. I hope that in these selections there are new paths for people to enjoy and explore with poetry.  -Kaitlin Kehnemuyi, Access Services Librarian

The majority of books were selected from these two lists:
