Chicago Reading: Poetry for Labor, May 1, 2011

This upcoming Sunday, May 1, 2011, International Labor Day / May Day, in conjunction with Red Rover Series and Chicago Durutti Skool, I am organizing an informal public reading on behalf workers everywhere, and in commemoration of the 125th Anniversary of the Haymarket Affair, which occurred in 1886.

The event will run from 9 am to noon, in the West Loop at 165 N. Desplaines Street at W. Randolph Street. It's reachable by CTA trains. If you are in or around Chicago, please drop by, bring your own poems, those by writers you admire, or journal entries and prose pieces about workers and labor!

Come read, recite and perform your and others' poems!
