Rupi Kaur is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of two collections of poetry. She started drawing at the age of five when her mother handed her a paintbrush and said-draw your heart out. Rupi views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey. After completing her degree in rhetoric studies she published her first collection of poems, milk and honey, in 2014. The internationally acclaimed collection sold well over a million copies gracing the New York Times bestsellers list every week for over a year. It has since been translated into over thirty languages. Rupi has performed her poetry across the world. Her photography and art direction are warmly embraced and she hopes to continue this expression for years to come.

collection every woman needs on her nightstand or coffee table.
