Poets Resist

  • The Celtic Knot 626 Church Street Evanston, IL, 60201 United States (map)

"During these dark times will there also be singing? Yes there will be singing about the dark times."

Throughout history poets have responded to atrocities through poetry. The very act of writing poetry is a form of resistance against silence, oppression, the status quo.

Evanston poets Ignatius Valentine Aloysius, Virginia Bell, Dina Elenbogen, Mike Puican, and Eran Tzelgov will read their own resistance poems as well as the work of some of their favorite poets.
