America Ferrera reads "Insomnia"

She's reading "Insomnia" by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. I love that the intro is by Amber--can't help but laugh at those Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants references!

I love them both so much. I have one of Amber Tamblyn's books of poetry and it's so good.
@danidee Okay is it really good? I really like her as a person but honestly haven't tried her poetry yet. Would you recommend it?
@timeturnerjones She tends to deal a lot with her own identity, which can sometimes be relatable for young women in America. But at the same time, she also tends to talk about the entertainment industry and being an actress in that culture and those pressures. I can see a lot of 'poetry people' finding that kind of thing petty, but as far as execution goes, I think she has a great grasp on illustrative poetry writing.
@danidee That sounds awesome! I will definitely give it a shot; I'm sure I'll at least enjoy some of it.
