Run Toward Fear offers readers a mixture of poems that challenge and cause both reflection on and questioning about many headline issues that have launched this century. Madhubuti includes poignant moving tributes to Jacob Carruthers, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Amiri Baraka, as well as heartfelt words that provide comfort and guidance to the families of the 21 people who lost their lives in Chicago's E-2 nightclub tragedy. The final section of the book, "A Poet's Handbook," provides personal and sometimes anecdotal insights on the craft of writing poetry.

User Review  - Maleka - Goodreads

The poems are wonderful but it's really the poet's handbook at the back that makes me give this five stars. Simply the best guidelines to follow as a writer and in your life in general. Never give up on poetry or children. Read full review
