Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

This poem was very moving and probably resonated with many of the listeners. I loved that an inaugural poet was selected again and that she read a compelling, and timely piece. Horray for poetry and for Alexander. I'm kind of shocked that the poet laureate wasn't asked to read...isn't that one of the perks?!


Thanks for including the poem. I loved that line as well.

Kendra Ann Thomas

Simple, elegant, and relevant. She could not have done better.

Alice Shapiro

The poem was wonderful. It was great to have poetry as part of the Inauguration. Perhaps it will bring a new interest in reading poetry to the country.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
