Please join us for a special evening of readings benefitting those affected by the 2017 hurricanes in Puerto Rico.

Featured poets and performers:
Warren Byrom
Maurice Manning
Manuel Gonzales
Martha Gehringer
Leatha Kendrick
Jeremy Paden
Deri Ross Pryor
Frank X Walker

Broadsides of Jeremy Paden’s poem "No Other Raft," featuring art by Annelisa Hermosilla, will be for sale for $25 at the event. Broadsides can be purchased in advance and picked up at the reading.

We are raising money for Brigada de Todxs, a volunteer community group in Puerto Rico that is rebuilding houses in the rural, mountainous region of central Puerto Rico. Monies will go to TECHO, a Latin American based non-profit group similar to Habitat for Humanity who has provided building materials for the Brigada.
