Exquisite Heats - new book by Cherryl Floyd-Miller
Congratulations to sistah quilter and blogger Cherryl Floyd-Miller! Her new poetry book Exquisite Heats is now out!. In her third poetry collection, Cherryl "... explores the infinite manifestations of heat in the human experience. She moves comfortably from issues of public history and personal identity to the musings of revered icons. R&B legend Rick James speaks of impropriety and addiction, Marvin Gaye reveals his aesthetic struggles as a popular artist, Billie Holiday gives voice lessons, Alice Walker’s Celie Johnson boils grits, and Joe Frazier recounts the night he beat Muhammad Ali." Enjoy!
