RESISTANCE, RESILIENCE, RENEWAL:  A GATHERING OF POETRY AND SONG CELEBRATING THE ENDURING LEGACY AND INSPIRATION OF MERIDEL LESUEUR

Thursday, February 22, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30pm

Meridel LeSueur, one of the great voices of the 20th century, was born on this day in 1900.  Her writings were grounded in the grassroots experiences and stories of women, working people, the disenfranchised and dispossessed.  Her immense love and respect for the power of the people and the power of the word was ever present in her poetry, novels, and essays. Meridel’s work touched generations of artists and activists, from Minnesota and the Midwest to the wide expanse of this country and this world.  Join us to celebrate her long and inspiring life as a witness, a chronicler, and a defender of people’s lives and struggles. 

Join us for a program of  presentations and performances of Meridel’s work as well as original work by established and emerging artists.

Free and open to all. East Side Freedom Library, 1105 Greenbrier Street, St. Paul

Continue the Conversation at Studio LRB, Minneapolis, MN

Back in April we held a conversation and performance in which we shared experiences and stories as a group about how to foster deeper connections to our land, water and community. As with all living things change is constant and unavoidable.  We felt it would be insuring and useful to revisit this conversation.  Please join us, Tickets available here.
