Rupi Kaur is considered by many to be the quintessential Millennial poet. Rising to fame after sharing her poetry and illustrations on Instagram, her first book, Milk and Honey, hit the top of the New York Times bestseller list. Our selected book, The Sun and Her Flowers, is Kaur’s second book. It was released in late 2017 and is still #8 on the New York Times paperback bestseller list at the time of this post’s writing.
All of the books in our book club focus on the Millennial experience, so we thought there could be no better first poetry book for our book club than one written by a world-renowned Millennial poet. Last month’s selection, Simon Sinek’s Leaders Eat Last, was a non-fiction book (be sure to check out our recorded livestream discussion of Leaders Eat Last if you haven’t yet – there’s still time to participate by leaving a comment). For December, we intend to choose a fiction book.
We’re also excited to share that, as of the time of writing, The Sun and Her Flowers is available as a free read for Amazon Prime members (as a part of Amazon Prime Reading), as well as Kindle Unlimited subscribers. If you are not a Prime or Kindle Unlimited member, you can check your local library to see if they have a copy or purchase the book from your favorite retailer. Here’s an Amazon affiliate link to the book: https://amzn.to/2AxVHp1. To get more of a taste of The Sun and Her Flowers, check out the New York Times book review.
We look forward to reading The Sun and Her Flowers with you! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcements about our livestream and discussion date.
