Sable Books proudly announces the release of Red Sky: Poetry on the Global Epidemic of Violence Against Women, an anthology of work featuring poems by Naomi Shihab Nye, Tony Hoagland, Thylias Moss, Fady Joudah, Jaki Shelton Green, Hélène Cardona, Zeina Hashem Beck, and the work of 100+ poets in response to globally oppressive physical, psychological, emotional, and systemic violence against women. Red Sky  is a collection of work by established and widely published poets as well as new and emergent voices around the world.

The World Health Organization reports that as many as 70% of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

Every day in America, at least three women are murdered by a former or current intimate partner. Red Sky,  co-edited by Melissa Hassard, Gabrielle Langley, and Stacy Nigliazzo, began as a way to address the untimely murder of Caroline Minjares by her estranged intimate partner. Friend and colleague of Ms. Nigliazzo’s, Caroline’s story has left a Texas family and community devastated by intimate partner violence, all too common in this country and the world.

Every shattered home,
every story worth telling.

–Naomi Shihab Nye

Poetry has the ability both to heal and to help us begin to understand. It is through this understanding and these voices that we hope to affect change.

Proceeds for Red Sky will be directed to the Global Fund for Women.
