Here it is...the cover of "Our Difficult Sunlight"

As Quraysh and I approach the tangible joy of holding our book in our hands in the near future, here is a quick peek at the cover, with the gorgeous cover image by Joyce Owens. Thanks Joyce and thanks Teachers & Writers Collaborative. Just 2 weeks to the Chicago book launch! The tip of the iceberg in presenting this project to the world. We appreciate all who helped us get to this magnificent moment. More soon!


  1. Hello! I had the pleasure of hearing you speak at AWP. I came up to you after the panel discussion and asked about poetry book suggestions for my son with autism. I look forward to reading your blog. Everyone on the panel was extremely inspiring and motivating. Keep up the amazing work - we can all learn from you. Best ~ Lisa Quinones-Fontanez.

  2. Thanks so much, Lisa. I am also enjoying your blog. If you did not get a copy of the book that day since we had a limited supply, it is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble on line. Keep up the good work!
