The Poetry Cure

book cover image Poetry Will Save Your Life

Can words that rhyme come just in time? For Jill Bialosky, certain poems stand out at pivotal moments, helping us take that road less traveled.

As Bialosky narrates these moments, she illuminates the ways poems offer insight, compassion, and connection. In Poetry Will Save Your Life, she recalls when she encountered each formative poem, and how its importance and meaning evolved over time.
