While October is arts month in this city --- see more on this at ArtsCrush --- there is a global event, 100 K Poets for Change happening from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm this Saturday, September 29th, at Richard Hugo House. 115 Countries and 800 different events are scheduled around the globe! I'm thrilled to be participating in this worldwide event that's happening right here in my city.
I will be reading two poems from 3:15 - 3:20 which will also be live streaming on local cable. Other poets who you won't want to miss include Kelli Russell Agodon, Elizabeth Austen, Jourdan Keith, Jeanine Hall Gailey, and Annette Spaulding-Convy.For the complete schedule of poets click here.
A dear friend of mine in Northern Ontario will also be reading in her local community on Saturday -- I love that this event even has it's own song --- written for the event!
More excitement happening next week with The Improbable Places Poetry Tour +1 and poets performing in their pajamas (and special guest). Later in the month there's a literary pub crawl. Stay tuned!
