Seeing in the Dark
Jackson Lears and Karen Parker Lears

It is hard to draw breath in this historical moment without feeling suffocated by sadness and anger--not to mention helplessness. The heavily armed state of Israel is systematically murdering the unarmed civilians of Gaza and reducing their neighborhoods to rubble.

Hearing Voices: Missing David Ferry
Rosanna Warren

David Ferry has kept me company, in his friendship and in his poems and translations, for over thirty years. I reach now for his books to steady me in my mourning for him.

I Chose Life: My Last Public Testimony of the Shoah
Liliana Segre (translated by Gregory Conti)

There comes a time when a person who is ninety years old, as I am now, says: "Enough, I need to rest. I don't want to remember anymore. I don't want to suffer anymore. . . .I don't want to anymore." Where to speak, then, for the last time in public?

32 Years, Pearls of K (mixed media)
Two Poems
Austin Segrest

Born on top in Brookwood Hospital,
I was raised on the backside of the mountain
really just a ridge, suburban subslope
under Brookwood Road's
irresistible straightaway, its thick trunks
waiting for the cars of high school boys
to wrap around them. . . .
