These writers and translators engage with the world in ways that go well beyond the books they’ve published. Acclaimed translator Katherine Silver has aided families detained on the border in the convoluted process of applying for asylum. Aaron Coleman’s new book, “Threat Come Close,” takes on the policing of Blackness and masculinity. Innosanto Nagara’s “A is for Activist” books teach kids the art of resistance. In the words of poet D.A. Powell: “Remember the lesson of West Side Story: one can dance and do battle at the same time.”
