Event Description

Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness 2018 offers free, public readings and book signings of our featured poets in the evening. Thursday's schedule features Camille T. Dungy, Sharon Olds, and Javier Zamora. Among the most significant and artistically vibrant poets writing and performing today, the festival’s featured poets exhibit exemplary public citizenship as activists, teachers, and supporters of marginalized voices. They represent the great diversity of poets writing and performing in the United States today: poets writing in all poetic styles, poets with disabilities, poets of many races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and identities, ages, and social classes. The venue is wheelchair accessible and all readings will include ASL interpreters.
