In this dazzling new collection, Alice Walker offers over sixty new poems to incite and nurture contemporary activists as she casts her eye toward history, politics, and nature, as well as to world figures such as Jimmy Carter, Gloria Steinem, and the Dalai Lama.

By attentively chronicling the conditions of human life today, Walker shows, as ever, her deep compassion, profound spirituality, and necessary political commitments.

The poems in The World Will Follow Joy remind us of our human capacity to come together and take action, even in our troubled political times.  

 “This tireless activist has freed her mischievous, sensual, and spiritual poetic self to write of nature, love, friendship, courage, and generosity with playful and crooning lyricism. . . . Walker distills struggles, crises, and tragedies down to bright, singing lessons in living with awareness and joy.” - Booklist

“A lavishly gifted writer.” - The New York Times
