Kelly Writers House: 'Who Will Speak for America?' in the Arts Cafe

In Who Will Speak for America?, hosted and edited by Stephanie Feldman and Nathaniel Popkin, 40 novelists, essayists, poets, and artists confront the political division heightened by the Trump presidency and imagine a just future for the USA. Contributors to Who Will Speak for America? are passionate and justifiably angry voices providing a literary response to today’s political crisis. Inspired by and drawing from the work of writers who participated in nationwide Writers Resist events in January 2017, this lively volume provides a collection of poems, stories, essays, and cartoons that wrestle with the meaning of America and American identity.
