Books by Elise Paschen
NPR stories about Elise Paschen
Poetry Speaks Who I Am is a collection of poems intended not "for parents, for children, for classroom study or for required memorization," says editor Elise Paschen. It's for tweens and young teens, and includes poems about school, cars and the horror of shopping for your first bra.
The new collection of nearly 100 poems does what its title says — a CD included with the book features many of the 73 authors reading their work.
