Fly to the Assemblies! calls Seattle to action

We're excited to bring you an excerpt from Fly to the Assemblies!: Seattle and the Rise of the Resistance, courtesy of sponsor Third Place Press this week. Fly to the Assemblies is a new anthology of writing from Seattle's top thinkers — journalists, activists, and others — that speaks to what the city is already doing in this time of political crisis and what we need to do next. As editor, Marcus Harrison Green has brought together a stunning group of voices to engage you on the page — or in person at the Nov. 2 launch event.

Third Place Press chose "On fear and anger and fighting back,” by Reagan Jackson, to share with Seattle Review of Books readers. You know Jackson's writing from Crosscut, The Seattle Globalist, and elsewhere; this piece is a suckerpunch of truth and fury. Read the essay, and an eloquent note about the book's publication from Third Place's Vladimir Verano, on our sponsor page.

Sponsors like Third Place Press make the Seattle Review of Books possible. Did you know you could sponsor us, as well? If you have a book, event, or opportunity you’d like to get in front of our readers, reach out and let us know. We’d be happy to reserve a spot for you.
