ABOUT THE BOOK : ‘Voices from Leimert Park Redux: A Los Angeles Poetry Anthology’ is a symphony of diverse voices echoing the collective heartbeat of a community. In 2006, ‘Voices From Leimert Park’ revealed one of the best kept secrets of the Los Angeles literary scene: African-American and other writers of color were producing nationally known and respected poetry, fiction, and non-fiction within the Leimert Park literary community. ‘Voices from Leimert Park Redux’ embraces radical new voices, and melds them with the well-seasoned tonality of Griots at home, on street corners, and in libraries. Listen to the ‘Voices from Leimert Park Redux’ and realize that you have just entered that safe place where truth is still being created with every honest breath.
