A Church Beneath the Bulldozer

6.00 10.00

 Kush Thompson's a church beneath the bulldozer is a survival kit for a brutal city and a bridge between girl and womanhood. There is a tiny switchblade in these poems that cut lines and hurt feelings and carve rights of passage. This is a book of poems and prayers for little sisters and nieces and lovers of cities and bodies under siege. This is a young priestess on high craft, announcing from the rooftops and back alleys Gwendolyn Brooks hoped to explore, that a new song and style is here and forever-ever changed, praise be!

-Kevin Coval, Artistic Director of Young Chicago Authors
