Reading and Discussion
Thursday, February 8, 2018 4:00 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.
"Epic in scope, immediate in tone, encompassing a broad historical range yet always attentive to specific human detail, The Language We Cry In serves to both teach our minds and move our hearts. “We are hooked / hanging onto her harmony,” Delicia Daniels writes of Billie Holiday’s singing. Daniels’ readers will feel much the same about this powerful collection." -- Joel Brouwer, The University of Alabama Author of Off Message
