Politics in our Living Room! 1.18.11 (Maryna Ajaja facilitates)

Let’s get political. Bring your favorite political poem, your own or someone else’s. Don’t be shy – read the one you believe in. Ars Poetica? Beliefs or commandments? Rules or unruly rules to live by? We will iron out our doggerel and dogma. Maryna Ajaja will read from Mahmoud Darwish and Aharon Shabtai.

Remember: Every $5 you donate to SPLAB gets you an entry in this month’s raffle for movie tickets, books donated from New Directions Press and much more!  3 lucky entrants must be present to win on January 25th!
