Review of Sara Moore Wagner Poetry Collection

Writing about Sara Moore Wagner’s new collection, Hillbilly Madonna, for Chapter 16 was such a pleasure. Wagner’s poems speak in moving, feminist ways about her Appalachian origins and family trauma. She highlights experiences that have often remained hidden in the discourse about Appalachia and opioid addiction. As she puts it, “This book gives a face and a voice to the addict mother, one who is struggling to find a way out.” My review is up today at Chapter 16.
