Strings: A Gathering Of Family Poems

Because of my strong family ties and clear memories, this is still one of my favorite anthologies. Finding poems to include in this book gave me the chance to explore my relationships with family members, not just those I grew up with, but also with my ancesters who were gone before I was born. The poems in this book are arranged in sections of poems written from a particular family member's point of view, like grandparents, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles. Another bonus for me was the dedication of the book in which I salute the members of my immediate family.
