FAR OUT: POEMS OF THE '60s includes poems by over 80 poets who remember that tumultuous decade from a wide range of vantage points. This collection brings to life the experiences of people who vividly remember the effects of the assassinations of Medgar Evars, JFK, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, who lived through the period of the Vietnam War and the protests against it, and who experienced the rise of Second-Wave Feminism, the Civil Rights Act and the emergence of the Black Power Movement, as well as the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Readers include Michael Anania, Roberto Bonazzi, Sybil Estess, Dede Fox, Janet Lowery, Bryce Milligan, Dave Parsons, Robert Phillips, Martha Serpas, and Randall Watson.
