Driftless Poets NEA Big Read Book Discussion & Open Mic

October 10, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join the Driftless Poets to discuss the NEA Big Read of “Citizen: An American Lyric” and share poetry inspired by Claudia Rankine’s award-winning work. Meet on the Green at Shake Rag Alley (weather permitting). Free, registration requested.

An initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. Shake Rag Alley was one of 78 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Big Read grant to host a community reading program in 2019-20.

The NEA Big Read showcases a diverse range of titles that reflect many different voices and perspectives, aiming to inspire conversation and discovery during dynamic community reading programs designed around a single selection.

To request a free copy of the book and learn about additional ways to engage with the book, see https://shakeragalley.org/nea-big-read.
