"The release of former three-term Vermont Governor Madeleine May Kunin's second collection of poetry, Walk With Me, is nothing short of an invitation the reader has no choice but to accept. Stepping into the pages, we are caught by the meanderings of the lines, the ebbs and flows of the images, and the inclines and gentle rolling undulations of the stanzas. In the scope of her book, Kunin is not simply taking us on a journey of language, but holds our hand as we crawl into a soft, cushioned space of the poet's authenticity and vulnerability. For 126 pages, we see the world from the end of a line cast far out on the horizon. From this place we are invited to gaze back in bittersweet remembrance and appreciation of a life filled to the brim with intention, warmth, confusion, loss, heartbreak, and growth."--Addison Independent
In person interview with Vermont Digger reporter, Kevin O'Connor, and Green Writers Press author, former Vermont governor Madeleine Kunin.
"A poetry collection in which she illuminates her past and present in a surprisingly honest yet hopeful light." --Kevin O'Connor, Vermont Digger Reporter
"An enthralling light emanates from the center of her poetry that reveals a life lived fully in love, laughter, joy, and sorrows overcome. Madeleine Kunin carries and divines her lineage and history with the kind of insight that is spectacularly fresh and tender. A hardwired sense of beauty throbs throughout the poems." --Major Jackson, author of Roll Deep, The Absurd Man, among others, and host of "The Slowdown"
