Whitewash, by Frances Victory Schenkkan

**PRE-ORDER** Forthcoming Publication Date: October 22, 2024

*Pre-orders receive a bonus poem postcard*

Whitewash explores the civil rights era and its lingering tensions in Shreveport, Louisiana. Narrative and lyrical poetry weave an intricate collection of voices struggling to come to terms with racism, complicity, and hypocrisy. Deeply researched, Frances Victory Schenkkan’s poems also confront her own religious and family histories alongside these portraits of a fractured city—layering them into a broader examination of the ways that American culture, like The Great Raft that once stymied Shreveport growth, still bears many griefs in need of healing.

Frances Victory Schenkkan is the author of Mr. Stevens’ Secretary (University of Arkansas Press). A National Poetry Series finalist, her poems have appeared in the Southern Review, POOL, and Third Coast, among others. She lives in Austin.
