This event has been postponed until further notice.

Join us in theReadings Gallery for this group reading by local authors and poets, Adira Libolt,Terry Persun, Betty Scott, Nancy Fowler, Linda Conroy, and Norma Bishop. Of Strange Fruit, Felicia Zamora, author of Instrumentof Gaps, writes, “...when the scales we turn to for justice are weighed down and sagging, there is no longer a possibility of balance. It becomes our responsibility to call our laws into question, to demand change. We must acknowledge the words of the dying, ’I am human. I am a human being.’ We all are human beings, and this book cries out for this to be heard. This book asks each of us to not turn our heads.”
