In June of 2023, Black Lawrence Press welcomed numerous existing and forthcoming Nomadic Press titles to our catalogue. And When She Tasted of Knowledge was originally published by Nomadic.

In her tenth poetry collection, Allie Marini explores the stories of women in religion and mythology who challenged the roles and expectations given them by patriarchal society.



Allie Marini’s poems are tiny offerings that leave me wanting more. The women that inhabit these poems wear masks which become the mirrors we hold up to ourselves. Marini’s ‘true face’ is that she can wear them all, the ones that ‘steal fire,’ and the ones that ‘suffer.
-J. Bruce Fuller
