Our poetry book club meets the first Wednesday evening of every month from 5:30 to 7:00. In March, the will continue the discussion of the poetry in One With Others by CD Wright. The poet's brother, Warren Wright, plans to attend the meeting.
The author returns to her native Arkansas and examines an explosive incident grounded in the Civil Rights Movement. Wright interweaves oral histories, hymns, lists, interviews, newspaper accounts, and personal memories as she draws directly upon the voices of witnesses, neighbors, police, activists, and a group of black students at the eye of the storm.
