Description

Preeti Kulkarni’s inspired free verse celebrates love and family, her Asian American cultural identity, and longing. Kulkarni’s straightforward and plaintive language asks the reader to read and reread to find the deeper meanings—to seek the undertow of youthful passion, curiosity, and heartbreak, with unsparing honesty. Following in the steps of other young, brown, immigrant poets, Nikita Gill, Lang Leav, R.H. Sine, Rupi Kaur, and Nayyirah Waheed, Kulkarni adds a bright new voice urging to be read. Illustrated throughout by Jasmine ‘Jaszy’ Smith.

About the Author

Fifteen-year-old Preeti Kulkarni has been writing from a very young age. During a very tumultuous point in her life, she used writing as a safe space to express her deepest feelings, then ultimately deciding to embark on publishing her debut book of poetry. Flower Storms on the Riverbank was inspired by Rupi Kaur and other young Asian authors. Preeti hopes to be a similar voice for other young people, as those authors were for her.
