Working in America – Word X Word Fesitval
June 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
For this event, the poet’s challenge is to use their art to explore and share personal stories centered around working in America – the challenges, triumphs and realities – from work we love to work that doesn’t love us back. (Information for poets interested in sharing their work)
“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.” – Studs Terkel
