Publisher: 
Price:
$13.50 (CAD)

This CD is a poetry jam in space — created across and despite razor wire, prison bars and censored phone lines. It is a gathering of poets to celebrate the work of sister poet Marilyn Buck, who has spent more than 20 years in US prisons for her anti-imperialist politics and actions (for more information on Marilyn Buck, click here ).

This CD contains 46 poems, read by 28 different poets. While some of the poets read their own poems, most (32) of the poems on this CD were written by Marilyn.
