Our next reading and open mic will take place on Monday, April 16, starting at 6:00 p.m. in Tucson. This month the featured reader will be Pamela Uschuk. Concerned about the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, Pamela and her husband Bill Root called upon poetry and prose writers to address the many important issues that Trump’s ascendancy threatens. The result is a 380-page anthology, Truth to Power: Writers Respond to the Rhetoric of Hate and Fear. Pam, who also is editor-in-chief of Cutthroat, a Journal of the Arts, will read from Truth to Power and also will read some of her own poems.
This will be followed by an open mic that is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!
The event will be held at the AFSCME/SEIU Union Hall at 877 S. Alvernon Way in Tucson. The building is on the east side of the street (opposite the Randolph Park golf range) and is a couple of blocks north of 22nd Street. There is ample parking. The room is on the first floor and we will have signs up to point the way.
NWU Tucson Friday morning breakfasts will take place on the following Fridays in 2018: February 23, March 16, and weekly after May 18. We meet at 9:00 a.m. at Laverna's Coffee Shop. The address is 220 S. Plumer, which is one block south of Broadway, on the west side of Plumer. See you there!
