Top third of the book image is teal with white text that reads Water Lessons. The next line reads Lisa Dordal. Below this are blurred gray lines Lisa Dordal (MDiv) will release her second collection of poetry, Water Lessons, from Black Lawrence Press in April 2022. In the collection, Dordal scrutinizes the patriarchal underpinnings of the world she grew up in as well as her complicity in systemic racism as a white girl growing up in the 70s and 80s. Woven throughout the book are meditations on a divine presence that is both keenly felt and necessarily elusive, mirroring Dordal’s ultimate celebration of her unborn daughter as a “lovely fiction” who is both here and not here.
