The resistance is not just about people taking to the streets and signing up to run for office.  Opposition to President Trump is obviously expressed in literature, too. 

The work of 42 writers, poets, and graphic artists is bundled together in the book Who Will Speak For America?  The works range from the beginning of the presidential term to the far future of the country, very much under debate at the moment. 

Nathaniel Popkin edited the book with Stephanie Feldman.  Nathaniel Popkin visits with an overview of the collection.
