"In respect to the #Metoo hashtag that has gone viral, and all the issues it represents, all writers for this evening will present work related to sexual harassment and assault. Cracked Walnut's mission is to create community through spoken literature, by giving talented writers the opportunity to share their work with an appreciative audience. All readings are are open to the public. The reading will take place in Beams Auditorium A at the Cedar Rapids Public Library." --Facebook Event Page
I'll be reading a few poems that were inspired by the phenomenon, and my family's personal reaction. Cracked Walnut has a history of intense, wonderful reading experiences, so please join us.
