You don’t think you like poetry? Stephanie Burt is here to help. We also have three Boston Public Library librarians recommending their favorite reads for Women’s History Month.

Stephanie Burt is a Harvard English professor, renowned literary critic and poet. In his 2017 collection of poems “Advice from the Lights,” Burt shares an intimate moment in his life. For readers who are new to the world of poetry, her book “Don’t Read Poetry: A Book About How to Read Poetry” offers readers a guide on how to explore the written word. For more books and poetry by Stephanie Burt, click here. Three librarians from the Boston Public Library shared their suggestions for Women’s History Month. Christina Jones recommends “Dread Nation” by Justina Ireland. “It’s a twist on historical fiction with modern times. You see slavery is out, but we have zombies.” Elaine Sherman recommends Greta Thunberg’s “No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference” to fight for what they believe in.” Anna Flynn is a fan of audiobooks. She said local libraries are a great resource for audiobooks. Her recommendation is “The Fifth Season” by NK Jemisin. “It’s the first book in a trilogy called the Broken Earth Trilogy and the genre is science fantasy. What’s pretty amazing about this is it’s a genre that’s really dominated by white men and this book is written by a woman of color and you can really tell the difference because the main characters are women and they are complex and they are strong. ”

“It’s good to deal with women who are not afraid to take risks and who will fight for what they believe in.”

Anna Flynn is a fan of audiobooks. She said local libraries are a great resource for audiobooks. His recommendation is “The Fifth Season” by NK Jemisin.

“It’s the first book in a trilogy called the Shattered Earth Trilogy and the genre is science-fantasy.
