Of her recent The Art of Death: Writing the Final Story, the New York Times wrote, “This book is a kind of prayer for her mother?an act of mourning and remembrance.” Aja Monet is a poet, activist, and musician and was a featured speaker at the Women’s March on Washington. Her books include My Mother Was a Freedom Fighter and The Black Unicorn Sings.
