Last year, the Carolina African American Writers' collective published One Window's Light: A Collection of Haiku on Unicorn Press. Hailed as a "literal and metaphorical groundbreaker" by Journal of Foreign Languages and Cultures coeditor Lauri Ramey, the book, edited by collective founder Lenard D. Moore and featuring contributions from its members, adapts the ancient Japanese form to black life in the American South. It's the first published anthology of haiku by African Americans. Moore, L. Teresa Church, Crystal Simone Smith, Sheila Smith McKoy, and Gideon Young read from the collection at Quail Ridge Books.
