Cover Reveal & Pre Order of Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson’s “She Lives in Music”

Andrea’s new collection She Lives in Music (FlowerSong Books, 2020)

“I am such a fan of Vocab’s powerful voice and visions.” 

-Naomi Shihab Nye, Poetry Foundation’s Young People’s Poet Laureate

“When you enter this temple of rhythm Vocab has so masterfully constructed, you best bring your dancing shoes. She has perfected a style of free-verse that tours through the senses like a band: beating like a drum, wailing like a trumpet, thumping like a bass, casting a spell only the truest jazz artists can conjure.”  -Charles “EasyLee” Peters 

“Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson is the “remix” and the mystery; the “edible melody” and the bass thump; the original and the new version of her own profound song.   Rhythm and sound, “4 beats to a measure,” read these poems for they will answer you in music.”

-Octavio Quintanilla, San Antonio Poet Laureate, 2018-2020
