DREAMING AMERICA: VOICES OF UNDOCUMENTED YOUTH IN MAXIMUM SECURITY DETENTION was published in 2017 by Settlement House. The poems in this bilingual book (written in English and Spanish) were penned by the incarcerated children from Seth’s poetry workshop. All the proceeds from the book have been donated to a legal defense fund for these children, entitled CAIR.
As Settlement House has since closed, the World English and Spanish rights for the book are currently available.
