Join Gretchen Primack and The Golden Notebook for a book launch for VISITING DAYS.
Visiting Days is a collection of persona poems “set” in a maximum-security men’s state prison like the ones in which the author has been teaching for many years. Incarcerated men and others speak from various places in the facility—the laundry room, the hallway, the school building, the visiting room, solitary confinement, and more. Perfect for those concerned with issues around mass incarceration and social justice, along with contemporary poetry lovers.
Says Truth Thomas, “In writing about the mass incarcerated skeleton in America’s closet, Primack unapologetically affirms the fact of their existence and their humanity. This courageous work is authentic in the feel of its persona poems, masterful in its balance of poetic impressionism and realism.”
