Kerri Webster’s “Lapis” Reviewed by Publishers Weekly

Congratulations are in order for Boise State Creative Writing Faculty member Kerri Webster! Ahead of its fall release, her latest book of poetry, Lapis received a glowing review from Publishers Weekly. InĀ Lapis, Webster writes into the vast space left by the deaths of three women: her mother, a mentor, and a friend. Using a wide array of lyric forms and meditations, Webster explores matrilineages both familial and poetic, weaving together death, spirituality, women, and a sense of the shifting earth into one “doctrine of Non-linear Revelation.” The book is scheduled to release on August 2nd, 2022.
