LISTEN, WORLD! is one of USA Today’s must-read titles for this week, deemed a “rousing biography of an overlooked figure.” The book received a glowing review from Glynnis MacNicol for The New York Times, who writes: “Scheeres and Gilbert attempt to resurrect Elsie [Robinson], fill in her biography and place her in the pantheon of women we should know about. The result is an engaging tale that doesn’t gloss over the extreme adversity and restrictions Robinson faced as a woman of much ambition and few means…At times LISTEN, WORLD! reads less like biography than a heavily annotated, if enjoyable, memoir.” Seal Press published the book on September 27, 2022.
