Selected by Nikky Finney as the seventh annual winner of the South Carolina Poetry Book Prize, Hold Like Owls is the primary book-length collection from Julia Koets. Full of imagery deeply embedded in memories of growing up within the American South, Koets explores what it means to carry–to carry memories–and what to carry onto and what to let go. Birds become paper, a voice fits inside a chestnut shell, and moths eat stars through a woolen sky as the gathering evokes nuance throughout the strange, reframes childhood memory, and engages the subjects of the night, sensuality, and desire. Whether questioning personal histories, language, sexual identity, or love, the gathering honors the “gentle corners of the night” that permit for questioning and uncertainty to exist.
