The ProsenPeople on Jewish Book Council
Erika Meitner's Holy Moly Carry Me is the winner of the 2018 National Jewish Book Award for Poetry. As reviewer Emily Heiden writes, the book "taps into national conversations on topics including motherhood, infertility, terrorism, Judaism, school shootings, the 2016 election, and race . . . A real, honest, scared voice [pervades] the work, asking questions like: How are we so vulnerable? How do we care for each other? How can we stay safe? Meitner gives voice to the fears of the moment in this portrait of a very unsettled American time."
