Join us for a reading by the editor and contributors of the anthology Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Poets Occupy the Workspace (Lost Horse Press), a finalist for the 2016 Foreword Books Awards. About the anthology Carolyn Forché says, "This remarkable anthology, gathered in tribute to Lilly Ledbetter with a toast to Carolyn Kizer, gathers the lyric art of working women, writing from the depths of at least sixty-two occupations. These are the poems of the heavy-lifters, night-shifters, line and piece workers, writing with grace and often with humor."
Contributors Judith Ayn Bernhard, Cathleen Calbert, Laura Ruth Loomis, Kathleen McClung, and Andrena Zawinski will be reading at the event. Editor and contributor, Carolyne Wright, will be reading and hosting.
