A doubleshot of poetry. Catherine Barnett’s collection The Game of Boxes won the 2012 James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. She’s a writer-in-residence at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and teaches writing to mothers in the shelter system. Ellen Bryant Voigt’s work is often concerned with American history, family and the natural world; witness her 1995 collection Kyrie: Poems, a sonnet sequence about the flu epidemic of 1918-1919.
