A Refuge of Tales

Lynne Sargent
A Refuge of Tales

What does it mean to make a home inside a story? Stories are safe, comfortable, familiar.
Fairytales and myths, these stories we all know and grew up with are even moreso. A Refuge of Tales takes everyday tropes and asks: safe for who? This is a collection of poems for
anyone who has ever felt outside of the myth.

With language both sharp and lyrical, Lynne Sargent weaves a treatise on the power of stories,
and how those who have been left behind can take up that power and use it to build a new,
better world.
