My guest is Stephanie Feldman. She co-edited "Who Will Speak For America?", with Nathaniel Popkin. The editors and contributors to "Who Will Speak for America?" are passionate and justifiably angry voices providing a literary response to today’s political crisis. Inspired by and drawing from the work of writers who participated in nationwide Writers Resist events in January 2017, this volume provides a collection of poems, stories, essays, and cartoons that wrestle with the meaning of America and American identity.
