Celebrate the poetry published by Graywolf Press, including works of poets Mai Der Vang and Susan Stewart. In Afterland, winner of the 2016 Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets, Vang recounts the struggles of her Hmong family members, refugees of the exodus from Laos, and the struggle of exile suffered by Hmong people throughout history. The New Yorker says Afterland “is among the most satisfying débuts by an American poet in some time.” In contrast to Vang’s debut, Stewart presents Cinder: New and Selected Poems in celebration of her thirty-five-year career as a distinguished poet, showcasing poems of childhood, consciousness, and the natural world.
