Revise the Psalm review – The New York Times

We're proud to announce that Revise the Psalm has received a New York Times book review by Claudia Rankine, alongside The Golden Shovel Anthology: New Poems Honoring Gwendolyn Brooks (University of Arkansas Press). This is our first NY Times review, and we're are all the more happy to have it be of this book in particular.

Rankine writes that Revise the Psalm is an "expansive response to Brooks . . . we get a keen sense of the poet and her fierce commitment to community engagement," and that "in their shared mission, [Revise the Psalm and The Golden Shovel Anthology] complement each other." 

The full review can be read here, and Revise the Psalm is available for purchase in our web store. We also encourage you to read The Golden Shovel Anthology, which can be purchased here.

We would like to extend our thanks to the New York Times, to our contributors, our editors Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku, to you, our readers, and – of course – to Miss Brooks.
