Uncoded Woman Book Summary :

"Coding and decoding are threads running through Anne-Marie Oomen's poems, which together tell the story of a woman named Bead and her search for safe harbor. The maritime International Code of Signals--a directory of ship's pennants and the messages they convey--becomes a symbolic guide to Bead's journey. Signposts along the way include "LN1: You Should Proceed with Caution, ""D: Keep Clear of Me: I Am Maneuvering with Difficulty," and"YZ: The Words Which Follow Are in Plain Language." The beautiful terrain near Lake Michigan forms a powerful backdrop to Bead's life with Barn, her Native American boyfriend, whose struggles are often in stark contrast to the wealthy resort community around them. Oomen captures the voices of women living on the edge of survival. From exhilaration to degradation, from betrayal to self-reliance, these poems defy harshness to offer the magnificent force of life."--Publisher's website.

The Heart of a Woman Book Summary :

Maya Angelou has fascinated, moved, and inspired countless readers with the first three volumes of her autobiography, one of the most remarkable personal narratives of our age. Now, in her fourth volume, The Heart of a Woman, her turbulent life breaks wide open with joy as the singer-dancer enters the razzle-dazzle of fabulous New York City. There, at the Harlem Writers Guild, her love for writing blazes anew. Her compassion and commitment lead her to respond to the fiery times by becoming the northern coordinator of Martin Luther King's history-making quest. A tempestuous, earthy woman, she promises her heart to one man only to have it stolen, virtually on her weding day, by a passionate African freedom fighter. Filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous characters, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose -- her fondest dreams, deepest disappointments, and her dramatically tender relationship with her rebellious teenage son. Vulnerable, humorous, tough, Maya speaks with an intimate awareness of the heart within all of us.

I Hope This Finds You Well Book Summary :

An Indie Next Pick The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller What Kind of Woman returns with a collection of erasure poems created from notes she received from followers, supporters and detractors—an artform that reclaims the vitriol from online trolls and inspires readers to transform what is ugly or painful in their own lives into something beautiful. “I'm sure you could benefit from jumping on a treadmill” “Women WANT a male leader . . . It’s honest to god the basic human playbook” These are some of the thousands of messages that Kate Baer has received online. Like countless other writers—particularly women—with profiles on the internet, as Kate’s online presence grew, so did the darker messages crowding her inbox. These missives from strangers have ranged from “advice” and opinions to outright harassment. At first, these messages resulted in an immediate delete and block. Until, on a whim, Kate decided to transform the cruelty into art, using it to create fresh and intriguing poems. These pieces, along with ones made from notes of gratitude and love, as well as from the words of public figures, have become some of her most beloved work. I Hope This Finds You Well is drawn from those works: a book of poetry birthed in the darkness of the internet that offers light and hope. By cleverly building on the harsh negativity and hate women often receive—and combining it with heartwarming messages of support, gratitude, and connection, Kate Baer offers us a lesson in empowerment, showing how we too can turn bitterness into beauty.
