The Big Texas Read featuring Andrea Vocab Sanderson

ANDREA VOCAB SANDERSON’S SHE LIVES IN MUSIC

Unplug from the outside world and JOIN us at The Big Texas Read (TBTR) brought to you by Writing Workshops Dallas and Gemini Ink. This month we’re reading and discussing Andrea Vocab Sanderson’s brilliant collection She Lives in Music.

“I am such a fan of Vocab’s powerful voice and visions.” -Naomi Shihab Nye, Poetry Foundation’s Young People’s Poet Laureate

“When you enter this temple of rhythm Vocab has so masterfully constructed, you best bring your dancing shoes. She has perfected a style of free-verse that tours through the senses like a band: beating like a drum, wailing like a trumpet, thumping like a bass, casting a spell only the truest jazz artists can conjure.”  -Charles “EasyLee” Peters

“Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson is the “remix” and the mystery; the “edible melody” and the bass thump; the original and the new version of her own profound song. Rhythm and sound, “4 beats to a measure,” read these poems for they will answer you in music.” -Octavio Quintanilla, San Antonio Poet Laureate, 2018-2020
