Water for the Cactus Woman (book)
Water for the Cactus Woman (SpuytenDuyvil, 2018) is a collection of narrative poems and photos about family trauma passed from mothers to daughters. I authored all poems and created all of the photos in the book.
Water for the Cactus Woman won a university-wide award from The City College of New York and has also been recognized by Ms. Magazine, The Poetry Foundation, Luna Luna Magazine, and other organizations. An art show by the same name was held at Valet Gallery in Richmond, VA.
