Field Trip to the Museum - poems by Jacqueline Jules

Finishing Line Press announces that it is taking pre-orders for Jacqueline Jules’ chapbook Field Trip to the Museum. This thematic collection is in the voice of an eighteen-year-old girl examining her life during weekly sessions with a psychologist. In 25 narrative poems, Jules tells the moving story of a young girl who travels away from self-destructive behavior to a new acceptance of herself.

"Field Trip to the Museum is a powerful, yet graceful collection of poems that express the emotional turmoil of youth.  With hopeful verses such as 'An Oyster's Luck,' Jules traces the path toward adulthood." -- Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor-Winning author of The Surrender Tree

"Jacqueline Jules’ poems surprise and delight. Homing in on the specific, they illuminate what’s most human in us all." -- Barbara Ann Porte, author of Something Terrible Happened and He’s Sorry, She’s Sorry, They’re Sorry, Too.
