Words That Burn brings to life the distinctive voices of conscientious objector William Stafford, Japanese-American internee Lawson Inada, and Chicano Marine Guy Gabaldón. This dramatic work juxtaposes the history and perspectives of three World War II figures through a blend of poetry and  prose written in their own words. 

Words That Burn by Cindy Williams Gutiérrez was the 2017 winner of the Oregon Book Award in drama.
