Poems and prose by San Francisco''s second Poet Laureate.
From the Publisher:

This impressive collection brings together Mirikitani?s strongest poems on a diversity of subjects: the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II, the fragility and challenges of family relationships, and the quest by people at the margins of society to claim justice, bread and dignity. Also included is her long inaugural essay in which she discusses how poetry can connect people and transform lives.

Janice Mirikitani is the author of three books of poetry. She has, over the past 35 years, created and directed programs for young people and people in need at Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco?s Tenderloin district.

Annotation:
Mirikitani's poems give voice to people on the margin, including the present-day hungry as well as Japanese-Americans incarcerated during World War II. Her essay on poetry's power to transform and connect supplements the collection.
