Alice Walker’s New Book Tackles ‘Trump Effect’ Through Poetry


 (KRNB) – Pulitzer Prize winning author Alice Walker is out with a new book of poems ‘Taking the Arrow Out of the Heart.’  It’s a collection of poems that address issues like police brutality, race and immigration in the age of the  Trump administration.

She appeared on  MSNBC’s The Beat With Ari Melber to talk about her book.  In part she says collection addresses the need to “heal ourselves” before we can move on to bigger things.

As for President Trump, Ms. Walker said that she believes that he envies his predecessor, Barack Obama.

“He has an inferiority complex, and that’s very sad. It’s even sadder that we elected him to lead. We definitely need a different kind of leader.
