Interviewed a few months prior to her death, feminist poet, author and activist Audre Lorde commissioned Dr. Gloria Joseph to write The Wind is the Spirit: The Life, Love and Legacy of Audre Lorde. They discussed a comprehensive biography that would tell Lorde’s story in full, revealing her tenacity, complexity and passion. Told Griot style, this combination anthology and biography brings together a wide range of prominent authors and activists, who all submitted essays, reflections, stories, poems, memoirs and photos that illuminate how Lorde’s literary vision and life inspired each of us to be so much more than we were before. Dr. Joseph will sign books following the program.
