ABOUT THE BOOK: The body is a poem we rewrite with every breath. Wyatt Townley, who in her dual life has taught yoga for decades, explores the body as place—as home—leading us from room to room, from trauma to revelation.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Wyatt Townley is the fourth Poet Laureate of Kansas. Her work has been read on NPR, featured in “American Life in Poetry," and published in venues ranging from The Paris Review to Newsweek. Rewriting the Body is her fourth book of poems, the first in seven years.
