Poetry of Crisis & Community: A Women's History Month Benefit Reading

In conjunction with Jersey City’s Office of Cultural Affairs, I am pleased to present my first official event as Poet Laureate of Jersey City! Poetry of Crisis and Community is a Women's History Month reading featuring local poets Crystal Letters, Madhuri Pavamani, Theta Pavis, and myself. Join us tomorrow evening, March 2 at 7PM at Froth on Franklin in Jersey City Heights.

Square image divided into four quadrants with the face of a different woman poet in each. Poetry of Crisis and Community is in yellow text down the middle of the image.

Poetry is an agile and potent tool for responding to crises and current events, so this event, bringing together our community in appreciation of the arts, is also a benefit for the earthquake relief efforts in Turkey and Syria during this time of crisis. All proceeds will be directed toward the relief efforts of Doctors Without Borders.
