Book Launch with Joy Sawyer

Joy Roulier Sawyer is the author of a poetry collection, Tongues of Men and Angels, as well as several nonfiction books. She holds and MA from New York University, where she received the Herbert Rubin Award for Outstanding Creative Writing, and teaches at Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver.

As its title promises, Lifeguards introduces poems whose characters gently tug us through threatening waters to safety. The stories told here—of an alcoholic mother, a nerdy gardener, a heroic boyfriend—overflow with music and elegy, love and humor. Whether pondering the delights of Dairy Queen or dry martinis, Joy Roulier Sawyer’s refreshing blend of genuine reverence and sly wit never fails to entertain, exhort, and enlighten. In Lifeguards, the poet offers us a lasting vision of deep, unapologetic affection—a rare balm in a cynical age.
