Tangerine: Poems at 94

My late grandmother, Tangerine Bell, published her first collection of poetry in 2017, at the age of 94. Her poems reflect a lifelong engagement with the genre, exploring themes of creativity, parenthood, love and sex, literature, religion, friendship and family relationships, and above all, the beauty and fascination of the natural world. Here are a couple of nice write-ups she received at the time:

Former Newark resident pens first book of poetry at age 94 (the Newark Post)

Until now, her book has only been available as a paperback book. I am very happy to announce that I’ve just put together a new digital edition! She was so pleased to have put together her collection, and I am pleased in turn to make the e-book available.

Tangerine: Poems at 94 is available as a Kindle e-book from your Amazon storefront of choice (US | UK | CAN and others). And of course, for those who prefer physical books, the paperback is only a click away 🙂
