And Yet


In an increasingly isolating and divisive world, Kate calls us back together, challenging us to stand up, speak up, and take up space. Her words make us feel seen at a time when women are increasingly put upon and their attentions increasingly divided. As we add even more titles – teacher, emotional bedrock, stabilizer – to the ones we are already expected to carry – mother, partner, friend – Kate’s words build resilience, community, and understanding. Her poems are both cathartic and galvanizing. And her committed following of engaged readers knows this as they continue to share her words with their tribes on social media.

From Kate Baer, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Kind of Woman, comes her much anticipated second full-length traditional poetry collection, And Yet.

I will love and be loved. Save and be saved
a thousand times. I will let the want into
my body, bless the heat under my skin.
My life, I will not waste it. I will enjoy this life.

And Yet dives even deeper into the themes that are the hallmarks of Kate’s writing: motherhood, friendship, love, and loss. Taken together, these poems demonstrate the remarkable evolution of a writer and an artist working at the height of her craft, pushing herself and her poetry in a beautiful and impressive way.

In this collection, Kate offers much needed inspiration to find the joy, and the hope, in all of life’s mess and miracles.
