Congratulations to Ona Gritz, Literary Mama Columnist, who recently published her first full-length book of poetry! Her book, Geode, was released in February by Main Street Rag Publishing Company.

It contains several poems that were first published here at Literary Mama. Some of those poems include:

"Boy Child"

"The Impatient Mother"

"Nighttime in the Country of New Mothers"


Ona Gritz writes her life in a sequence of beautifully observed and crafted moments, with superb control, not a line out of line. Disabled yet unsparing of herself, she claims her kin. But her emotional depth, her honesty, and the clarity of her voice will reach every reader--she’s akin to us all. This is a fine collection. --Hettie Jones

Stay tuned to Literary Mama Reviews for an upcoming review of Geode.
