Reading, Discussion & Book Signing featuring RAISING LILLY LEDBETTER: WOMEN POETS OCCUPY THE WORKSPACE
These are the voices of women poets in the workspaces they occupy—much as Studs Terkel illuminated the lives of working people in his interviews, as Woody Guthrie celebrated in song, and as the iconic Mary Harris “Mother” Jones (at one time called “the most dangerous woman in America”) fought for in labor strikes, union organizing, and a seminal autobiography. Editors Wright, Lyons, and Toledo have brought together voices of women poets in the workspaces they occupy: from cotton rows to corner suites, trawlers to typing pools, nursing stations to space stations, factory floors to faculty offices. These voices bear witness to women’s workplace lives, and act to re-envision and refigure the world of work for women.
