Cheers to Ada! The Big Deal Mug

Milkweed Staff — 04/30/2019


✨ Limited-edition offer in honor of Ada Limón and The Carrying! Give a donation of $25 or more to support Milkweed’s publishing program and receive a beautiful, custom mug featuring Ada’s poem “The Last Thing” from her National Book Critics Circle Award-winning collection! You can even add your donation on top of a book purchase! You’ll be prompted to select this special gift at checkout.


Milkweed has been honored to serve as Ada’s publishing home for the past decade. Her poetry embodies our mission to build an engaged community around literature. After all, books aren’t created to sit on shelves—they belong in conversation. And the tens of thousands of copies of Ada’s books that are out in the world are a testament to the power of her poetry to reach and move people wherever they are.

“I can’t help it,” goes the poem. “I will / never get over making everything such a big deal.” Us too.

Congratulations and thank you, Ada!
