On May 15, 2018, Madisen Kuhn and I had a conversation about her newest poetry collection, "Please Don't Go Before I Get Better" at the Strand Bookstore in New York City. You can watch it below.

Chronicling the complexities, joys, and challenges of this transitional phase of life, “Please Don’t Go Before I Get Better” is a powerful work that refreshes readers with its candor and vulnerability. A poignant exploration of self-image, self-discovery, and self-reflection, this anthology brilliantly captures the universal experience of growing up, and you are bound to find yourself reflected in these glimmering pages. Following her breakout debut “Eighteen Years,” poet Madisen Kuhn is thrilled to share this intimate portrait of a young woman navigating early adulthood and leaving her teenage years behind.
