THANK YOU ALL for coming to our picnic last night! it was a blast to chat with you, eat good food, and hear great words in poetry and music.

CRISTIN O’KEEFE APTOWICZ & northfield native THADRA SHERIDAN!
are you excited?! because we’re really, really excited.
Hi poetry lovers, activists, and generally GOOD HUMAN BEINGS: there is a 24 hour live streaming POETRY EVENT tonight. Poets of color from all across the country will be reading you poems to help raise money for the protestors in Ferguson, MO. I believe in this so much. This is so important. This is where you should put your money and your mind.
&&& IN CASE the words “24 hour live stream of poetry” and “support protestors in Ferguson” didn’t do it for you (weird) - you should know that some of the poets reading are Sarah Kay, Rachel McKibbens, Hieu Nguyen, Hanif Abdurraqib to name a few.
Tune in tonight! I know I will.
