A Life Speaks is the 2019 Kresge Eminent Artist Monograph, featuring the life and work of Gloria House. Editor Nichole Christian and I worked together to develop and publish this book. Gloria House, aka Aneb Kgositsile, is an educator, activist, and poet. We let the subject lead the book, framing Kgositsile’s poetry as the main stage, preceded in classic monograph form by essays and stories of her life and work. The resulting book is compact, serious, and comfortable to read at length.
