The times they are a’ changing, but for better or worse? After the contentious U.S. presidential election and U.K. Brexit vote, many are still wondering just that.
Across the country and Europe, writers are coming together in the spirit of compassion, equality, free speech, and the fundamental ideals of democracy for Writers Resist: Louder Together for Free Expression, a literary protest to defend and protect free expression at a time when it’s dangerously under threat. A local poetry reading will take place in San Luis Obispo as part of Writers Resist.
Featured Readers will include Marguerite Costigan, past poet laureate for the County of SLO at Linnaea’s Café in SLO on Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. Members of the public are welcome to participate by reading a poem of resistance. Visit writersresist.design for more information.
