About the Poet:

Margaret Gibson is an award winning poet and author of 11 books of poetry. Her most recent, Broken Cup, is a finalist for the 2016 Poets’ Prize. About Broken Cup, Stephen Dunn has written, “Among its many virtues, Broken Cup is a great love story, and I’m using the word ‘great’ both carefully and precisely. . ..”

Jane Hirschfield writes: Margaret Gibson brings a master poet’s breathtaking eloquence to the witnessed, lived through, resilient intertwining of full presence and love in these pages describing the shared journey of her poet-husband’s Alzheimer’s.
