Woman Made Gallery Poetry Reading Series
recorded Sunday, 2012-11-11
In the spirit of Lucile Clifton, this reading is meant to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." Join six remarkable poets who occupy words, never as a polemic but always toward truth-telling, for a memorable afternoon of words made to occupy. Curated by Valerie Wallace, the poets will read from their work and talk about how and why they approach poetry to be used on and off the page.
This event was recorded with the consent and participation of the contributing artists and the host venue, Woman Made Gallery. The recording was originally made available on the web through WBEZ-FM/Chicago Public Radio's Chicago Amplified project.
