In How to Love a Country: Poems, Miami-Dade County Poet Laureate and U.S. Presidential Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco addresses the complexities and contradictions of our nationhood and the unresolved sociopolitical matters that affect us all. Gianna Russo, the Wordsmith of the City of Tampa, documented the last quarter of 2020, collected as a dialogue between poems and photographs in All I See Is Your Glinting: 90 Days in the Pandemic. With gripping narratives and brilliant descriptions, Hurricane Watch: New and Collected Poems brings together Poet Laureate of Jamaica Olive Senior‘s first four books of poetry alongside a new collection. Moderating is Nicole Tallman, poetry ambassador for Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
