A Louisville Poets Anthology edited by Louisville native and acclaimed Horsepower author Joy Priest.

Conceived in the aftermath of city-wide protests in 2020,
Once a City Said showcases the polyvocal communities of Louisville, Kentucky, a city celebrated for its bourbon, basketball, and horseracing, but long fraught with racial injustice, police corruption, and social unrest.

Priest takes the city’s narrative out of the mouths of politicians, news anchors, and police chiefs, and puts it into the mouths of poets. What emerges is an intimate report of a city misshapen by segregation, tourism, and ruptures in the public trust. Featuring thirty-seven acclaimed and emerging poets—including Mitchell L. H. Douglas, Erin Keane, Ryan Ridge, and Hannah L. Drake—
Once a City Said archives the traditions and icons, the landmarks and spirits, the portraits and memories of Derby City.
