This April 2022 Kent State University Press is releasing a
moving new collection of poetry penned by people around the
world sharing their experiences and responses to the pandemic.
DEAR VACCINE:GLOBAL VOICES SPEAK TO THE PANDEMIC
is a full color volume of over 150 submissions which come
from all states and 118 different countries.

Heal with humanity
