by Bolling, Bonnie

Poetry. Middle Eastern Studies. Winner of the John Ciardi Prize for Poetry, selected by H. L. Hix. Inspired by her time in the Persian Gulf, Bonnie Bolling expands the typical American view of the Middle East in THE RED HIJAB. Her poetry confronts violence, and the anger many residents feel, but it also shows the daily kindness and humanity that occur alongside, and even because of, the region's turmoil. THE RED HIJAB explores a place filled with beauty, culture, and family, amid the everyday lives of people whose growing collective empowerment has become one of the major issues of our time.
