If there is a poet that understands the human soul it is Beth Ann Fennelly. As she read “3mths after having a baby” from her aptly named book Tender Hooks, she hooked all that were in attendance and tapped into the core of motherhood itself.

Along with the 2004 publication of Tender Hooks, she is author of A different kind of hunger (1997) Great with Child: Letters to a young mother and most recently the daring Unmentionables:Poems.
