Book 'Em II
Just got a new book in the mail from Upski Wimsatt, scribe of Bomb the Suburbs and No More Prisons. Titled Another World Is Possible, this new release from Subway & Elevated Press and New Mouth from the Dirty South is subtitled "conversations in a time of terror" and features more than 100 contributors responding to Sept. 11 and its impact. The book is accompanied by a video produced by the NY Independent Media Center, Paper Tiger TV, and Big Noise Films, as well as by a forthcoming hip-hop album. The book's editors will also be conducting a six-month, 36-city tour.

That's the neat part. In Upski's publisher's note, he puts it thusly: "This isn't just a book. It's a conversation sparking campaign. Carry the book around. Read it in public. It's not just a book to spark idle conversations. It's a book that raises the question: 'What can we do?'"

Indeed. What can we do?
