You Should Probably Read This: Kin Types

If you read Merril’s blog you know that she’s a historian and a poet. Here’s Merril’s first reaction to KIN TYPES. (Thanks, Merril!)

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

So–this arrived last night. I left it on the kitchen table, and I just started reading it–you know, leafing through it the way one does–and I got sucked in. I had to force myself to put it down because I have work to do. It is a powerful, lyrical mixture of poetry and prose, tragic accounts of everyday life–stories from her family history. Well, at least that’s what I’ve read so far. I’ll return for more in a bit.

OK, back to work now!

Luanne Castle is an award-winning poet. You can read more about her here.

  1. Nice Luanne! Getting sucked in is always a good thing. Yesterday I checked our Barnes and Noble for Kin Types, but I was denied. Boo! I couldn’t even find someone to ask about it. I’ll look again next week.

    • Thank you so much, Jill! I don’t know if they will carry it in the store or not, but it available on their website. Sent you an email today, I think haha. Today feels like a blur!

  2. Mine arrived this morning Luanne 🙂

  3. That does sound like a really interesting book! I love family histories

  4. What a lovely review. I have received my copy of Kin Types and am looking forward to spending some quiet time with it. Congratulations on your latest publication!!
