We’d like to congratulate Cherene Sherrard for having her forthcoming poetry collection, Grimoire, featured in Ms. as a September 2020 Read. Every month, Karla Strand puts together a list of new books published by authors from historically underrepresented groups. Included below is her description of Grimoire:
An exploration of Black motherhood and ancestry, this poetry collection is both celebratory and cautionary. Sherrard uses magic, food and knowledge to center experiences of Black childbirth, childrearing and womanhood.
Sherrard’s Grimoire is currently available for pre-order and we will celebrate the official release on September 15.
