ALOUD at Central Library

Resist, Disrupt, Transgress: Four Poets
Chiwan Choi, Natalie J. Graham, Ashaki M. Jackson and TK Lê

Poetry Reading

Join us for an electrifying evening of poetry as four bold writers from diverse backgrounds come together on the stage to explore their common experiences of loss through time and history. Navigating losses of home, of life, and of identity—from a family displaced by war to an examination of videos capturing police killing civilians—these local poets will read from their uncompromising work that perseveres despite loss by searching for ways to rise up and recover.
