American Writers Review 2021: Turmoil and Recovery

As of this writing, the pandemic continues, killing record numbers of people. Moreover, countries that had enjoyed democratic governments are facing authoritarian attacks. Divisions run through the fabric of our homes, our families, our nations. At the same moment, there are wellsprings of hope, love, and connection.

  2. Always great to hear from you, Elwood Writers. It’s been a crazy journey to the completion of Turmoil and Recovery. My own thought process about your contributions and others, we have recorded history of a sorts in this book with honest accounts on what affected lives through the 20-21 pandemic. We are thousands of miles away from each other, yet we have experienced the same emotions and fears as science came through to help eradicate a deadly virus. I will read these stores and poems many more times. Thank you for being willing to share to make our long hours of waiting a more enjoyable journey.
