We are the publisher, so of course we give this anthology five stars. We could not possibly do justice to this remarkable anthology by excerpting any of it. Instead, we'll post the names of those who contributed to the effort. All proceeds from the sale of this anthology will be donated to the Malala Fund (www.malalafund.org).

The anthology was conceived in 2012 after the shooting of Malala, a 15 year old Pakistani girl, who was targeted by the Taliban for promoting education for girls. She had been blogging and speaking out since age 11. Fortunately, she survived the attack and she continues to work for the cause of women's rights. A nominee for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize, she again has been threatened by the Taliban.

This thoughtful response to the shooting of Malala provokes the reader to reflect more deeply on the plight of uneducated girls and women. With a variety of poems in honor of Malala, this anthology, while short, is hardly a light read. In fact, some poems necessitate rereading while others will make goosebumps rise on the reader's arms. Knowing that all proceeds from sales will be donated to the
Malala Fund will also give readers satisfaction.

My parents made sure there were lots of books in the house for my younger brother and me, but what I read most avidly was Poe, and to this day my work displays some Poe-ish qualities. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1972, and received an M.F.A. from the University of British Columbia in 1974, where I studied with the v ...more
