Gallagher’s second book of poems, Stubborn, follows quickly after publication of her first book, This Minute (Fordham), which received the Poets Out Loud Prize. Stubborn won the ninth annual FIELD Poetry Prize. “Readers will not want to put down this book once they have started to encounter it. It shines with power and crackles with excitement.” (David Young)
