There Will Still Be The Body
There Will Still Be The Body is Ann Arbor Youth Poet Laureate Zaphra Stupple's first full-length collection of poetry published by Red Beard Press.
Zaphra's therapist Laura Sanders writes in the introduction, "In this poetic manifesto, There Will Still be the Body, Zaphra puts powerful voice to one young person’s process of healing from early childhood trauma...Recovery from such trauma is a long, often tumultuous, alinear process with ebbs and flows of successes and relapses; yet simultaneously, Zaphra’s collection of poems reflects a steady movement forward, in the direction of self-love and personal empowerment. Through this process, Zaphra has unearthed and reveals a unique trauma-narrative, so imperative to their healing, and such a gift to their readers."
