"No matter how much the world tries to kill us, our beauty always survives." – Quartez Harris

Quartez Harris is the author of the debut full-length poetry collection We Made It To School Alive, published by Twelve Arts Press. The collection eloquently centers the humanity of students of color while revealing how they establish self-worth and optimism in spite of a backdrop of structural barriers.

A young poet from Twelve Literary Arts will read from We Made It To School Alive, followed by a conversation with the author.

The livestream will be available beginning at 10:30 a.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.

Want to read the collection? You can order it here.
