Experience live readings from This Is the Honey, a breathtaking poetry collection on hope, heart, and heritage from the most prominent and promising Black poets and writers of our time, edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author Kwame Alexander. Featuring work from well-loved poets such as Rita Dove, Jericho Brown, Warsan Shire, Ross Gay, Tracy K. Smith, Terrance Hayes, Morgan Parker, and Nikki Giovanni, This Is the Honey is a rich and abundant offering of language from the poets giving voice to generations of resilient joy, “each incantation,” as Mahogany L. Browne puts it in her titular poem, is “a jubilee of a people dreaming wildly.”

Featuring: Kwame Alexander, Mahogany Browne, Nikki Giovanni, Tony Medina, Evie Shockley, and Quincy Troupe; with live musical accompaniment by composer and pianist Donal Fox

This Is the Honey will be available for purchase from Café Con Libros and a book signing will take place after the reading.
