Elizabeth Hazen will be celebrating the release of her newest book of poetry, Girls Like Us, with a reading.
Pre-order a signed copy now.
Girls Like Us is packed with fierce, eloquent, and deeply intelligent poetry focused on female identity and the contradictory personas women are expected to embody.
The women in these poems sometimes fear and sometimes knowingly provoke the male gaze. At times, they try to reconcile themselves to the violence that such attentions may bring; at others, they actively defy it.
