I Wore This Dress Today for You, Mom by Kim Dower

It was a joy to have Kim Dower join me just before Easter to chat about, I Wore This Dress Today for You, Mom. 

Kim is a word artist . Her poetry is compelling — and I am in awe of how she can ordinary events and create poems that are so compelling.

In this latest collection her exquisite poems celebrate and honor the special bond between mothers and daughters. These touching personal poems touch a universal cord that will resonate in your heart.

An anthology of old and new poems that reflect on the challenges and joys of the mother-daughter experience. Sometimes funny, often heartrending, and always with deep understanding and insights. 

Los Angeles Times:

“…sensual and evocative . . . seamlessly combining humor and heartache,” 

O Magazine 

“…unexpected and sublime.” 

“What we inherit from our mothers, what we carry forward, what we never receive, and what we choose to leave behind—Kim Dower’s poetry resonates with the echo of a rich and complex mother-daughter relationship that she gently and carefully unravels, line by line. This is a stunning collection from a poet whose wisdom as a daughter and a mother shines through on every page.”

—Hope Edelman, author of Motherless Daughters
