Civil Liberties United Anthology Launch Reading, 7/7/19 @ 2pm

Editor Shizue Siegel presents a reading by Dee Allen, James Cagney, Francée Covington David Erdreich and Richard Sanderell, Norma Smith, Lyzette Wanzer -- all contributors to the just-published anthology Civil Liberties United: Diverse Voices from the San Francisco Bay Area (Pease Press, 2019) -- 300 pages of poetry, prose and art from 100 writers and artists of color and white allies celebrating the rich variety that truly makes America great. Civil liberties matter—to everyone, not just those who are targeted now. Those who keep silent may be next. 


People of color are 60% of Bay Area population, yet we remain under represented and underpublished. In polarized times, democracy cannot be taken for granted. We need to reach within ourselves and reach out to others, moving forward together to create the society we want to see.
