October is national Domestic Violence Awareness month, and we are lifting our voices to protest this worldwide epidemic. Rape, rape culture, acts of war, physical, mental, and emotional violence, and even systemic violence -- the world needs our voices and stories now more than ever.
Sunday, October 16th
Central Branch of the Greensboro Public Library
Begins at 3:00 p.m.
Come join us at the Greensboro Public Library for a reading and conversation of Red Sky: Poetry on the Global Epidemic of Violence Against Women (Sable Books 2016). Featuring work by Naomi Shihab Nye, Tony Hoagland, Thylias Moss, Fady Joudah, Jaki Shelton Green, Hélène Cardona, and Zeina Hashem Beck. From some of the most respected names in poetry to new voices, this anthology features the voices of one hundred poets, and examines this issue from difficult, beautiful, and important perspectives.
Our reading welcomes poets from the Triad and across the state, including (in alphabetical order) Kathrine Cays, Beth Copeland, Janice Moore Fuller, Melissa Hassard, Faith Holseart, Debra Kaufman, Ashley Lumpkin, Ashley Nissler, Metta Sáma, Rebecca Pierre, Maria Rouphall, and Leslie Waugh.
Representatives from the Guilford Family Justice Center have also been invited to the discussion. Join us for a very special afternoon. We hope to see you there.
