Before the Vote After

by Jane Yolen

“Keep this book by your side and next to your heart. We all will need it for the struggles that lie ahead.”
—Attorney Bill Newman, author of When the War Came Home

“Jane Yolen digs deep into her heart and comes up with poems that offer hope, inspire us to action, and remind us that we are not alone. This slim volume, at once steeped in history and a reflection on the present moment, is exactly what we need during these troubled and troubling times.”
—Lesléa Newman, author of October Mourning: A Song For Matthew Shepard

“Leave it to Jane Yolen, consummate storyteller, to show through these courageous poems the arc connecting historic votes that changed the world with news of the presidential election so hotly contemporary, it’s still burning. Most especially, Yolen’s poems remind us that we rise through connection and care for each other and the natural, living world of which we are a part.”
—Patricia Lee Lewis, poet, teacher, and author of High Lonesome
