« Notes in a time of strike: the curatorial noos of “Futur, ancien, fugitif, une scène française” [by Tracy Danison] | Main | Happy birthday, Ludwig Van! »

This seems like an appropriate time to remind people of Dante's review here of a sister anthology to What Saves Us: That being Resist Much/Obey Little: Poems for the Resistance, a 750 page anthology that was the first collective poetic response to the Trump era. So good to see the big book now edited by Martin Espada.

Thank you, Dante. Bruce Weigl's "What Saves Us" is a terrific title poem. -- DL

And a true "sister" anthology to Resist Much/ Obey Little is Nasty Women Poets: An Unapologetic Anthology of Subversive Verse edited by Grace Bauer and Julie Kane. Over 200 writers responding to the U.S. presidential candidate elected in 2016. https://www.vidaweb.org/sarah-fawn-interviews-the-editors-of-nasty-women-poets-an-unapologetic-anthology-of-subversive-verse/ (https://www.amazon.com/Nasty-Women-Poets-Unapologetic-Subversive/dp/0998196339)
