Read Kira Lynne Allen's Write This Second: A Poetic Memoir cover-to-cover in order to grasp the arc of her journey. It is not a comprehensive rendering of her life, but a focus on lived experiences highlighting societal tides that must turn. The tides of: racism, incest, poverty, rape, addiction, eating disorders, being silenced, domestic violence, suicide and PTSD that have yet to be addressed by #MeToo or Time's Up. Their deep impact demonstrates how generations of women and children will continue to drown in these tides until we speak to and listen to and believe one another. Staceyann Chin says, "it is a baptism in hard truths. Dive in. Read it. Twist and turn your body as you glide though the ocean of Kira's words." Write This Second tells one family's story of generational trauma that sounds an alarm meant to reveal and disrupt the roots of rape culture by proclaiming our authentic selves.
