Rochester Poets will be devoting its September reading at St. John Fisher College to 100 Thousand Poets for Change.
Our event will be held on Sunday, September 18, from 2-4 pm; we plan to expand those hours a bit to about 6 pm to give everyone a chance to participate. As usual, we’ll be in the Ross Gallery of the Skalny Welcome Center, which is literally the first building on the left when you enter the Fisher campus from the main entrance at East Ave & Fairport Rd. There’s loads of free parking in Lot A right across the drive from Skalny. For a map of the Fisher campus, go to: http://rochesterpoets.freehostia.com/sjfcmap.htm
As with our Poets Against the War & Occupation events, we not only welcome all poets from the Western New York region but also singers, musicians, comics and those who want to say something about change — especially the changes we need in America in this time of rightward drift towards a have & have-not country. A country where it’s no longer unthinkable to advocate for the abolition of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unions, and even voting rights.
100 Thousand Poets for Change is a worldwide event that will be primarily taking place on Saturday, September 24. We’ll be kicking off 100KPFC week with our event and invite you to join us.
