Broadway Books is pleased to be hosting several local authors from the recently published anthology Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Poets Occupy the Workspace, co-edited by Carolyne Wright, Eugenia Toledo, and M.L. Lyons and published by Lost Horse Press in its Human Rights Series on Equal Pay Day, 2015. The reading will take place at 7 pm on Monday, November 2nd, at Broadway Books.
With poems from 120 North American and international poets, a statement from Lilly Ledbetter herself (she after whom the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is named), and blurbs from human-rights poets and activists Carolyn Forche and Cynthia Hogue, this book was a labor of love for more than three years.
Reading at the store for this event will be Carolyne Wright, Barbara Drake, Barbara LaMorticella, Penelope Scambly Schott, and Willa Schneberg.
