Praise for 4th Period English:

"Judith Arcana’s 4th Period English is so wonderful, I feel privileged to have read it, and I wish it were part of every curriculum starting right now. This is absolutely terrific writing." —Alicia Ostriker

"These poems are amazing. The stories that emerge here are vulnerable, confused, angry, outraged, tender, and, above all, deeply human." —Diana Rico

"Judith Arcana’s polyphonic collection is a labor of love and compassion. Arcana makes her readers painfully aware of the ways our young people struggle between and among the myriad borders of this world. —Alicia Partnoy
