About Books Beneath the Bridge

In this moment where social justice is at the fore of our collective consciousness, it is vital more than ever to listen and learn from one another. This year’s Books Beneath the Bridge series will feature presenters reflecting on current events and centering marginalized voices, through the lens of their lived experience as well as their communities’.

We will feature a range of perspectives and navigate themes of protest poetry, migrant voices, gender-queer perspectives, the richness and resilience of black girl culture, modern-day parenting, and more.
