Book Trailer: The Damp in Things

One of the best things about Bread Loaf, for me, was rooming with Millicent A. A. Graham, a wonderful lyric poet from Jamaica. Here we are, sitting outside on campus:

I don’t know how they knew to pair us, but we both felt lucky, even though our room was sort of small and directly above the kitchen (all the better to eavesdrop on the waiters’ Madonna routine).

Millicent read from her extraordinary book of poetry, The Damp in Things, one afternoon in the Little Theater. Everyone was blown away by her incredible images and language. I think you should watch the book trailer! Then you will want to buy the book.
