Four Way Books is so thrilled to announce that one of our authors, Claire Kageyama-Ramakrishnan has been put on the list of "Young Poets To Watch" according to Rita Dove's list through Bill Moyers.

"Claire Kageyama-Ramakrishnan has authored two books of poetry, Shadow Mountain (2006) and Bear, Diamonds and Crane (2011). Her poems recall the tragedy of the Japanese internment camps and her own memories of her grandparents. Critic Gregory Orr writes that her poems “celebrat[e] the mysteries of personal identity as they intertwine with history and culture.”"

Check out the list for yourself with the link above. There are a lot of great poets to watch! And come to Four Way Book's website to get a copy of either one of Claire's books.
