Author Event: A universally relateable collection about living through difficult times like these

In-person author discussion

Featuring contributing authors Brooke Warner, Rita M. Gardner, Rita Sever, Esther Erman, Donna Stoneham, PhD, Dr. Evelyn LaTorre, and Linda Joy Myers.

Art keeps good alive in the worst of times. In the face of ugliness, pain, and death, it’s art that has the power to open us all to a healing imagining of new possibility; it’s art that whispers to the collective that even in the ashes of loss, life always grows again.

That’s why right now, in this tumultuous time of war and pandemic, we need poets more than we need politicians.

In response to the multitude of global crises we’re currently experiencing, editor Stephanie Raffelock put out a much-needed call to her writing community for art to uplift and inform the world, and the authors of She Writes Press answered.

Art in the Time of Unbearable Crisis — a sometimes comforting, sometimes devastating, but universally relatable collection of prose, poetry, and art about living through difficult times like these — is the result.

Addressing topics including grief and loss, COVID-19 and war in Ukraine, the gravity of need and being needed, the broad range of human response to crisis in all its forms, and more, these pieces explore how we can find beauty, hope, and deeper interpretation of world events through art — even when the world seems like it’s been turned inside out and upside-down.


Proceeds: Our Commitment

The collection of essays, poetry, and art in this book are meant to feed and nourish our hearts and minds. It’s what women do — we feed people. To that end, the proceeds from this work will be donated to the nonprofit World Central Kitchen, an organization conceived by chef José Andrés as a way to feed people affected by natural disasters and war.

World Central Kitchen financially supports food banks and restaurants that provide free food throughout the world.
