“The Cook Chronicles – Three Generations of Poets” By William J. Cook Jr, Marie Antoinette & Day’Quan Jabree’

History! Afro-American history paves a path for the future. Poetry! Poetry is one of the oldest and respected forms of written expression. Throughout history, countless poets have left their mark on us with exquisite verses ranging from romance to politics and no matter your preference; they have, in some way or another, inspired us about life, our beliefs and have tapped in to our emotions.

The Cook ChroniclesThree Generations of Poets is a tribute not only to history and one of the oldest art forms known to man; it is a collective tribute to poets who bring blank pieces of paper to life by way of their pen. “The Source“, William John Cook Jr., an honored WWII Vet, the first entry in this legacy provides priceless contribution to this piece with his never before seen works, dating back over six decades. His wisdom on life, serving time in the war and his take on our future is nothing less then thought provoking, inspiring and candid.

The Vessel“, the second entry by William’s first grandchild, Marie Antionette, adds a sassy twist to the compilation while riding the fence of melancholy and morality. The anthology then comes full circle by concluding with the fresh input of William’s first great-grandson, Day’Quan Jabree’ whose segment is accordingly titled, “The Future.” This young writer allows readers to witness the struggles of an evolving youth, as they reach to obtain balance in today’s world of conflict and uncertainty.

The Cook Chronicles provides readers with insight from a variety of angles and a balance for all generations, past, present and future. A classic addition to any library!
