Hold Steady My Vision
by Emily Laurent Henderson

Hold Steady My Vision, Emily Laurent Henderson’s first poetry collection, is full of softness, intimacy, and movement across thresholds. Her poems treat changes—in bodies, in relations between inner and outer worlds, in connection to people and place, and in shifting states of being.
