Call and Response is a collection of poems, stories, and essays written by senior citizens and public high school students across the state of Mississippi. In these pieces, young people creatively respond to the teenage memories of Mississippi elders, reimagining their stories through a contemporary lens. This collection is a product of the Write for Mississippi workshops that took place in the fall of 2018 and spring of 2019 — linking local Mississippi writers to nursing homes and public high school classrooms — and the final entries were selected by the students of the Millsaps College Storytelling class. The book also includes a foreword by Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and oral historian Alysia Burton Steele. All proceeds will help fund future Write for Mississippi projects.
