Book Your Stocking with Erin Pringle

Book Your Stocking: Day 12

Welcome back to Book Your Stocking, where every day until Christmas, avid readers recommend the book, story, song, or word-something that you and your friends would love to find in your stocking or sock drawer.

Today, I'm recommending a book because I missed a day in the series and it would seem odd to have nothing happen for Day 12, even though it's Day 13 when I'm writing this (technicality, tho it may be).


Recommendation: Known by Salt by Tina Mozelle Braziel

Why: Her poetry doesn't give a f*ck that it grew up in a trailer park and understands lakes, lipstick, and low-income living. I feel recognized when I read her work. Real, raw, and what poetry looks like when it's by the people for the people--impossibly gorgeous. 


About today's reader: I write stories in all sizes and prefer to read poetry.
