Elmaz Abinader reads from "This House, My Bones", her newly published book of poetry 7PM, fri. 10-3-14

Poetry Reading and discussion of the her new book This House, My Bones with poet Elmaz Abinader
 
"THIS HOUSE, MY BONES" is a gorgeously scripted chronicle that probes the collective heart and the countries we inhabit when we dare to speak outloud. There's an insistent rhythm in these stanzas, a lyricism of light and lineage stamped with the undeniable signature of a poet at the height of her craft. Savor these poems, and be lifted by their music. --Patricia Smith, Author of "Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah", winner of the 2013 Lenore Marshal Poetry Prize.

Elmaz Abinader reappears with the fluid truth, a straight line to the soul, the storm in your throat. Her new collection sings deep into the bone marrow of what we fear losing: our witness vein, the maps that help us recoup what we misplace in the forgetting, and the dead who carry our names. "THIS HOUSE, MY BONES" blesses us with a new language for the anatomy of our silences. --Willie Perdomo, author of "The Essential Hits of Shorty Bon Bon".

What went wrong behind the scenes in the Trayvon Martin case? Why does America endure so many tragic shootings like this one? These are the questions at the heart of Suspicion Nation.
Bestselling author, trial attorney, and NBC News analyst Lisa Bloom covered the murder trial and was appalled by what she witnessed. Bloom now exposes the injustice, conducting new in-depth interviews with key trial participants and digging deeper into the evidence. Suspicion Nation outlines the six biggest mistakes made by the state of Florida that guaranteed it would lose this “winnable case,” and the laws and biases that created the conditions for this tragedy.

Read a transcript or Listen to an mp3 audio of Michael Slate interviewing Lisa Bloom on March 28, 2014 on the Los Angeles Pacifica affiliate KPFK. Lisa Bloom says: "I think that fifty years from now, people are going to look at this case as the Emmett Till case of the early 21st century."
