Despite not finishing the two books from my first Two for Tuesday Mini Haul, (I’m 3/4 of the way through American Street), I decided to add two more books to my collection. I bought them through the Button Poetry website.
I tried my hand at some creative photography for this one. Let me know if it was a hit or miss in the comments below:
Still Can’t Do My Daughter’s Hair by William Evans and The Crown Ain’t Worth Much by Hanif Willis-Abdurraquib have such beautiful covers. I’ve listened to both poets on Button Poetry’s Youtube page before and I’ve enjoyed their work. I meant to get The Crown Ain’t Worth Much after buying Black Movie by Danez Smith, but I didn’t get around to it until now.
As a poet myself, I’m so excited to support these authors. I haven’t decided if I’m saving these for 2019 or not, time will tell.
