Kristin Berger, Echolocation

From both the visible and invisible margins of life, from the Oregon forest to high desert, from lake to river, Kristin Berger's new book of poems, Echolocation, seeks to reconcile memory and loss with a world still very much alive and beating. In a time of diminishing truth and light, this book locates beauty and holds space for its returning. "If we have forgotten that poetry is a call sent out into the world to rediscover and name our hearts, minds, and bodies, Kristin Berger's beautiful new book of poems reminds us of poetry's good and necessary work. Berger's Echolocation leads us into that work, honestly and elegantly inviting us to know our own lives and landscapes. This is a wise book that reminds us that resilience is real, is close. 'Remember, ' Berger tells us, 'love is a breath / we are invited to take. / Wild, fond, near.'" Annie Lighthart, author of Lantern and Iron String
