Sixteen Rivers Anthology Celebration
May 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
America, We Call Your Name: Poems of Resistance and Resilience, was conceived in response to the 2016 presidential election, combines the voices of poets from across America—from red states and blue states, high schools and nursing homes, big cities and small towns—with the voices of poets from other countries and other times. From Virgil and Dante to Claudia Rankine and Mai Der Vang, from Milton to Merwin, from Po Chü-i to Robin Coste Lewis, these voices—now raucous, now muted, now lyric, now plain—join together here in dissent and in praise, in grief and alarm, in vision and hope. Local poets will read selections from this inspiring volume.
