On March 11, Harvard Book Store’s virtual author series and Boston Review welcomed celebrated writers Sonia Sanchez (Robert Frost Medal), Tyehimba Jess (Pulitzer Prize), and Domenica Ruta (New York Times bestselling author of With or Without You), for a night of readings to celebrate the release of our new literary anthology, Ancestors. Moderated by arts editor Adam McGee and contributing arts editors Ed Pavlić and Ivelisse Rodriguez, the evening also featured Boston Review 2020 contest winners Cheswayo Mphanza and Yeoh Jo-Ann.

We are also pleased to announce that our 2021 contests are now open! Free for anyone outside the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe—as well as those experiencing financial hardship—the contests are on the theme of Repair, and will be judged by Kali Fajardo-Anstine (fiction) and Sonia Sanchez (poetry).

Support Boston Review and future arts readings by purchasing Ancestors.
