MORE ABOUT THE READERS
America, We Call Your Name is a brand new anthology from Sixteen Rivers Press. The featured contributors reading at this event are:
Susan Griffin, Forrest Hamer, Chiyuma Elliott, Dawn McGuire, Matthew Zapruder, Peter Dale Scott, and Don Stang.

Edited by Murray Silverstein, Gerald Fleming, Lynne Knight, Carolyn Miller, Jeanne Wagner, and Helen Wickes, America, We Call Your Name was born in response to the 2016 Presidential election. It 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. The 126 poems in this book call out to America in resistance to threats to our democracy and in the resilient belief that this fragile, imperfect form of government can and must be preserved. "These poets have an urgent message to share with you," writes Camille T. Dungy in the foreword. "This message is brand new, and it is also eternal. Read carefully. What you learn here might just save your life."
