Rupi Kaur, renowned poet and author of “Milk and honey” and “The Sun and Her Flowers,” will stop in Madison tomorrow for her American tour.

Kaur is an Indian-born Canadian poet and #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of two collections of poetry. She started drawing at the young age of five, according to her books. Her mother handed her a paintbrush and said — draw your heart out.

After completing her degree in rhetoric studies, Kaur published her first collection of poems “Milk and honey” in 2014. The internationally acclaimed collection sold over a million copies and was featured on the New York Times bestsellers list every week for over a year. It has since been translated into over thirty languages.

“The Sun and Her Flowers,” her long-awaited second collection, was published in 2017. This collection continued the poet’s exploration of a variety of themes ranging from love, loss, trauma, healing and femininity.

Madison is Kaur’s second stop out of 12 on her American Tour. She will be performing as a part of the Wisconsin Union’s season in Shannon Hall at 7:30 pm.
