Poetry reading and open mic featuring Alix Olson, Lynn Xu, and more! 

"This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal."—Toni Morrison
