Ripped from the Headlines! Poets Reading the News at Beast Crawl

September 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+0

With a news cycle like ours, we need poetry. Come hear poetic reflections on the news from legendary writers Arisa White & Moira Roth, along with the editors of Poets Reading the News, Jenna Spagnolo and Elle Aviv Newton, at Oakland’s Beast Crawl.

BEAST CRAWL is Uptown Oakland’s annual free literary festival featuring more than 200 writers in a single night, in dozens of events, spread out over three hours and thirty-eight local galleries, bars, restaurants, cafés, performance spaces, and storefronts.

POETS READING THE NEWS is the world’s only newspaper written entirely by poets. We publish work from around the world online atwww.poetsreadingthenews.com and host an events series in Oakland, California.

ARISA WHITE, author of You’re the Most Beautiful Thing That Happened, Black Pearl, and Hurrah’s Nest, is a Cave Canem graduate fellow. She can be found online at arisawhite.com.

MOIRA ROTH is an art historian, writer, and playwright. She has published extensively including Difference/Indifference: Musings on Postmodernism, Marcel Duchamp and John Cage. She has a “News from the cafe” series on Poets Reading the News.
