Lessons on Expulsion: Poems (Gray Wolf) is a new collection by Lewis Center Fellow Erika L. Sánchez that draws upon her signature ability to weave dreaminess with vibrancy while highlighting the menace that lies behind the comfortable and commonplace. Relying on an imaginative technique that blends oral history, journalistic reporting, and magical realism, Sánchez’s collection tells the stories of sex workers, farmers, adolescents, and churchgoers.
