With that question in mind poets Pamela Gemin and Paula Sergi began collecting the poems in Boomer Girls, an anthology of coming-of-age poems written by women born between 1945 and 1964, give or take a few years on either side.

The answers to that question till this volume with the energy, passion, heartbreak, and giddiness of womens lives from childhood to adolescence to middle age.The poems in Boomer Girls are by unknown, emerging, and established writers, women who participated in the second wave of feminism. From Sandra Cisneros My Wicked Wicked Ways to Barbara Crookers Nearing Menopause, I Run into Elvis at Shoprite, from Wendy Mnookins Polio Summer to Kyoko Moris Barbie Says Math Is Hard, these poems call for us to celebrate (in the words of poet Diane Seuss-Brakeman) glances, romances, beauty and guilt, regret, remorse, rebates and rejuvenations.Boomer Girls share a common culture, bound by their generations political history by pop icons like Barbie -- that pedestaled Boomer Girl whos just turned forty -- and by the music thats never stopped playing: Janis Joplin, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, the Ronettes, Van Morrison, Patsy Cline, John Lennon.

The Boomer poets in this feisty anthology speak with diverse voices and embody a wide range of experiences, yet their generations universal images -- the hula hoops, TV shows, tinned auto-mobiles, and other household gods of their youth -- unite them in ways both hilarious and tender.
