ABOUT THE BOOK:
Personal narratives from farmworkers, sex workers, the undocumented, the incarcerated, and more—covering the first year COVID swept across the United States.
Unheard Voices of the Pandemic reveals through first-person narratives what happened the year the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the United States.
The seventeen stories included in this collection speak to the precarity, uncertainty, and injustice of that year, but also to bravery, solidarity, and generosity. Although the shadow cast by the COVID-19 pandemic is long, the insights gleaned through listening can last longer.
