Poets Resist: Voices of Dissent

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Bear Pond Books presents a night of political poetry with Reuben Jackson, Tina Escaja with her translator Kristin Dykstra, Sarah Browning, Simone John, and Burlington's Muslim Girls Making Change. Poets will read/perform poetry about the current political climate, racism, and/or injustices in our society: poems that speak to resistance! With an introduction by Vermont Poet Laureate Chard DeNiord. It is our hope that a collection of diverse and underrepresented voices will inspire hope, change, and action in this current political climate, as well as remind us of the importance of free speech and voices of dissent in a truly free democracy. Sponsored by and a benefit for the ACLU Foundation of Vermont. Co-sponsored by Goddard College. A Vermont Arts 2017 event, a program of the Vermont Arts Council. Tickets $5 - now available in the store at 77 Main Street, Montpelier, or Online at http://www.bearpondbooks.com/poets-resist-ticket
