On September 29, 2012, many poets around the world will make their voices heard. To declare the change they’d like to see most in the U.S. and throughout the international community, events are being staged on four continents and in over 100 countries as part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change.  This night of poetry and activism in Chicago asks the questions: “Who are our heroes?” “Why?” And most importantly “How can we use their examples to create positive change in the world?”

Co-curated by Barbara Barg, Laura Goldstein, Jennifer Karmin,
Larry Sawyer & Lina Vitkauskas

Cosas qué hacer con el amor...

El amor hay que besarlo en la boca. Acariciarlo bien todas las noches. Rehacer y deshacer lo antes hecho. Buscar razones de sí sin cabida para el no. Empezar la carrera después de llegar a la meta. Crear con lo abstracto algo tangible. Palpar su esencia todos los días: dentro de ti.   JVP
