Chosen by the American Library Association as a 2012 Notable Book in Poetry, Beauty Is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability edited by Sheila Black, Jennifer Bartlett and Michael Northern, is an anthology of poetry, essays, and writings about disability.

Marie Kane, author of Survivors in the Garden, says, “Immerse yourself in muscular poems of tenderness and intensity, intimate poems of eloquence and bluntness, profound poems that present disability’s difficulty, challenge and pride — all the while exploring the triumph of the human condition.”
