*Open Mic Night *

*Saturday, October 7 | 4:00 – 6:00 PM*
Featured Guests: Helen Dimos  and William Rowe

Helen Dimos & William Rowe live in Athens, Greece.  Their most recent books
are, respectively, No Realtor Was Compensated for This Sale (The Elephants,
2016) and Collected Poems (Crater Press, 2016).

*Poetry & Politics: If the task is to change the world, what does poetry
do?*
What are the forces that keep current realities in place, and how can we
think about the ways that poetry can alter these realities? Helen Dimos &
William Rowe will briefly read from their own recently published poetry and
the poetry of others, and then present some ideas and arguments on the
efficacy of poetry in the sphere of the political. The aim of the readings
and the statements will be to open up conversation and discussion with
everyone.

We will save time for the Open Mic too!
