In Felon, Reginald Dwayne Betts tells the story of post-incarceration existence and examines prison, not as a static space, but as a force that enacts pressure throughout a person’s life. Jericho Brown’s The Tradition details the normalization of evil and its history at the intersection of the past and the personal. In Deaf Republic, Ilya Kaminsky confronts our time’s vicious atrocities and our collective silence in the face of them. Naomi Shihab Nye’s The Tiny Journalist puts a human face on war and the violence that divides us from each other.
