Ann Fisher-Wirth’s “Mississippi” Reviewed by BURNAWAY

BEI Emeritus Fellow Ann Fisher-Wirth recently published Mississippi, a collection of her poems with photos by Maude Schuyler Clay.  This review from Jacqueline Knirnschild at BURNAWAY describes the collaboration process between poet and photographer.  Knirnschild also addresses the book’s effect and its implications:

“With such a divisive political climate, we need empathy more than ever, and that is exactly what Mississippi provides us with. Everyone, regardless of race, class or gender, is struggling with something, and Fisher-Wirth’s lyrical poems bring to life the pursuits and struggles captured in Clay’s photography of the state.”
