Please join Poetry Society of New Hampshire in a conversation with Leah Umansky on Womanhood and Bravery.

Leah’s newest book, Of Tyrant (Word Works Books, 2024), is about living under the eye of the tyrant. The tyrant, in his many forms, devastates our democracy and our truths. In doing so, he also infringes on what is precious in our humanity and hearts.
