Join The Common at the Texas Book Festival! Come to the Kirkus Reviews Tent on October 25 at 4pm, where Editor in Chief Jennifer Acker will be moderating a conversation between Matthea Harvey and Nicole Callihan, “WordArt”:

Poets have a knack for creating brilliant images by using only words. But when visual art is added to the mix, these poets elevate their work from beautiful to something truly magical.
