          Director: Rachel Eliza Griffiths Special Thanks: Nina Angela Mercery, Gregory Pardlo & Pardlo Family, Ekere Tallie, Dominique Sindayiganza & Family, Four Way Books, Jerome Foundation Music: Spencer Garn, Living in Harmony ABOUT THE BOOK: With unrelenting yet tender honesty, She Has a Name tells the story of a young woman with autism from multiple points of view. The speakers in these poems--sisters, mother, father, teacher--seek to answer questions science can't yet answer, seek to protect the young woman, and seek to understand what autism means to their own lives as well. * * * Praise for She Has a Name: "In this marvelous debut, Kamilah Aisha Moon manages a magic poets envy: her voice is at once intimate and encompassing. When you think she's a master of the litany, you turn the page to find she needs no list to reach her startling epiphanies." –Jericho Brown "A fierce love undergirds the poems in Kamilah Aisha Moon's moving debut...She Has a Name is resonant in its grappling, wise in its recognition that what threatens to render them each undone is also inextricably part of what binds them to one and other.” –Natasha Trethewey “It's hard to think of a contemporary poet who can confront the pangs of real-world intimacy with the truthfulness and acuity that blaze in these poems.” –D. Nurkse “When a loving sister makes up her mind to tell the unmitigated truth about her younger sister, her special sister, her wondrous and gifted sister, and she tells that truth in the most beautiful poetic language she can find, what is born is an unforgettable story called She Has a Name.” –Nikky Finney * * * Please Visit: kamilahaishamoon.org fourwaybooks.com
