We've permanently moved our in-person events to the street level of our store, making them fully accessible to all!
The celebrated poets brought together in this thoughtfully curated collection all focus in some way on resilience and healing in the face of trauma, whether personal, intergenerational, or inflicted by war. These lyrical journeys — from Ukraine, the Caribbean, Korea, Spain, and other lands across the globe — sharpen our sense of empathy and shared humanity. Some poets, like Don Mee Choi, seek healing through social critique and activism; others, like Jericho Brown, take a more intimate and reflective path. Themes of freedom, legacies, imagined futures — and especially love — abound. Almost all these books are from indie presses, which, like us, strive to create a space for voices of enduring value in our world.
