Elizabeth Velez and Mary Esselman's latest poetry anthology is set to be released soon! How Did This Happen? Poems for the Not So Young Anymore focuses on aging and follows their other bestselling anthologies (To Hell with Love: Poems to Mend a Broken Heart, Kiss Off: Poems to Set Your Free, and You Drive Me Crazy: Love Poems for Real Life) which imbue the relevance of poetry in the modern world.
Dahlia Lithwick, Senior Editor at Slate writes:
"This gorgeous, hilarious, heartbreaking and wise roadmap to becoming the Women whose Roots are Showing, feels like stumbling into that secret Facebook group you always dreamed of: where your very best friends are all waiting for you brandishing poems of pain and laughter, and admonishing you to 'tell the truth if you can.'"
Congratulations to Elizabeth and Mary for this exciting development!
