Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 171 (4/18/24)

Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we celebrate National Poetry Month with poet Sara Henning's Burn, which releases on April 22nd.

Burn draws readers deep into the moments that make us, focusing on instances of crisis and renewal to explore our relation to time and lived experience. In these poems, we follow a speaker as she works through the loss of young love, the death of her parents, marriage’s hardness and beauty, sexual assault, and the devastation of a pandemic—evolution of trauma that fracture time and alter perception

Mandi is the author of six published novels, two short fiction collections, and numerous short stories. She earned her BA and MFA in creative writing from SIU.
