If you’re at all familiar with modern poetry, the name Rupi Kaur should roll off your tongue easily. A queen of narration and a master voice in the #metoo movement, Rupi is as inspirational as she is creative. She has redefined poetry in the media, making an art that fears becoming outdated increasingly relevant in a society that is forever struggling at the crossroads of every new decade. Of her two novels that have been published, “The Sun and Her Flowers” is definitely my favorite. This book checks all of the boxes for me: family heritage, sexuality, grief, empowerment, and sense of self. “Milk and Honey” is impressive as well; layered with darker undertones than its follow-up, the homage to a damaging past is powerful.

I’ve written editorials about Rupi Kaur before, as she is clearly a personal favorite of mine, but now I am looking forward to hearing her live. Recently, I was gifted with a pair of tickets to see her on October 24 when she will be at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, and I couldn’t be more excited to watch her perform. As someone who has had a lifelong interest in verse and hopes to learn more about literature in the following years, Rupi is an idol of mine, especially because of her political and feminist themes. Her books have helped me grieve and have helped me grow, and her words are a model to mold after.
