RECKONING: TENNESSEE WRITERS ON 2020

ABOUT THE BOOK

Supported by an Arts Resilience grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission, RECKONING invites readers to bear witness to 2020 from diverse angles, from a front porch in Knoxville to a virtual classroom in Johnson City; from the tornado-ravaged neighborhood of East Nashville to the sidewalks of Memphis. These writers find surprising moments of joy and solace and humor in the midst of crisis, but they do not shy from expressing grief and acute longing. Their essays, stories, and poems give us vivid glimpses of an unforgettable year, one in which we were all challenged to reckon with ourselves, our sense of community and safety, our commitment to justice, and our place on this planet.
