I love that an idea takes root, finds place between covers of a book.
It is powerful to be able to look up poets from other places who figure in the book -- for instance Alice Weiss, who I met in Boston, or the 15 or 20 people who met in February 2012 in Rochester to read aloud their poems and those by other people.

The idea of this anthology came from recognizing the importance of gathering nationwide to discuss "Liberty" and the Occupy movement.
It is a fair gathering of poems, some well-craft
