The Vagabond’s Bookshelf, Dawn Potter’s new book is popular. Here is a preview of the first few pages.
In this luminous memoir, Dawn Potter considers her personal relationship with the books she has read and reread over the course of her life—works by Leo Tolstoy, Charles Dickens, Charlotte Brontë, James Baldwin, Malcolm X, and many others. Weaving a daily life into a reading life, The Vagabond’s Bookshelf is a celebration of our deep yet mutable relationship to literature and the world.
DAWN POTTER directs the Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching. She is the author of seven books of prose and poetry, including the award-winning memoir Tracing Paradise: Two Years in Harmony with John Milton. She lives in Harmony, Maine.
