World Literature Today’s autumn issue celebrates U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo with poems and an interview inside, and the cover feature devoted to Literary Activism commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Alcatraz occupation that began in November 1969. Guest-edited by Allison Hedge Coke, the section showcases the work of 22 writers, including the literary sensation Tommy Orange. Other highlights in the issue include essays by Igiaba Scego and Edward Hirsch, an interview with Laila Lalami, and a valedictory top 10 list by columnist J. Madison Davis. As always, a generous selection of book reviews and other features round out the issue.
