What God Is Honored Here? (Shannon Gibney and Kao Kalia Yang)Jennifer Baker, Dania Rajendra, and Seema Reza, contributors to Shannon Gibney and Kao Kalia Yang's new edited collection, What God Is Honored Here?: Writings on Miscarriage and Infant Loss by and for Native Women and Women of Color, will be at Word Up Community Bookshop on Saturday, November 9 at 3:00 p.m. for the East Coast launch of the book.

 

What God Is Honored Here? is a literary collection of voices of Indigenous women and women of color who have undergone miscarriage and infant loss, experiences that disproportionately affect women who have often been cast toward the margins in the U.S. Powerfully and with brutal honesty, they write about what it means to reclaim life in the face of death.

 

"Pregnancy loss is a most enigmatic human sorrow, unique to every woman who suffers it. These stories of resilience, grief, and restoration are essential, for to understand is to heal." —Louise Erdrich

 

"What God is Honored Here? is the hardest and most important book I've read about parenting, loss, and imagination. It's also the most frightening book in my world, but not because it is horrific: it is about the terrifying possibilities of love." —Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy

 

"Together these writers have created a sacred space, a temple, in which the unspeakable can be shared in a way that honors their losses and the women they are, women who endured, who fought, who lost, who grieve . . . and the individual and collective healing that can come from allowing survivors to remember. A book of astounding grace and strength." —Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do
