Poetry. THE LILY POEMS are love poems for an adopted daughter, a tribute to hope and to family. Liz Rosenberg’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, Best American Poems, The Atlantic Monthly, The Paris Review, Poetry, APR and elsewhere. Robert Creeley wrote, “Liz Rosenberg is clearly a poet of great distinction in her generation” and the New York Times praised her for being “eager to jump into experience with the innocence of an enthusiast and the vulnerability of a lover.” In THE LILY POEMS she celebrates the exasperation and exhilaration of parenting: “It’s a party always going on in this room without drinks or gossip, / without dips, or introductions. In her bedroom / there is only one chair, which we two share.”
Liz Rosenberg is an associate professor of literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Binghamton. She has published more than a dozen popular picture books for children, and four prize-winning anthologies of poetry for young readers, including Light-Gathering Poems (Henry Holt), which won the 2001 Lee Bennett Hopkins Award. She lives with her husband and son in Binghamton, New York.
