Standing room only sold-out crowd for Yuba Lit’s UNITED WE STAND: Writers Respond to Trump!

Yuba Lit stood strong with Writers Resist!

Rousing, inspiring, and searching readings from Angela Sells and Will Dane, Indigo Moor, Sands Hall, Jordan Fisher Smith, and our incredible array of audience flash-readers. Thank you to Angela for bringing James Baldwin’s wisdom back before us, to Indigo for conjuring Yusef Komunyakaa, to Sands for leading us all to sing Woody Guthrie and reclaim “America the Beautiful.” So good to be in community last night. And as many in the audience and behind the mike said, this is just the beginning for those of us–so many of us–who believe in compassion, equality, and justice. As Mary Volmer reminded us: Every. Voice. Counts.

Great thanks to Andrea Roach for these photos:
