Readings by Great Lakes Poets Laureate on Social Justice
Eight poets will read works from the new anthology Undocumented: Great Lakes Poets Laureate on Social Justice, edited by Ron Riekki and Andrea Scarpino.
Focusing on contemporary issues, the book showcases a large collection of regional poets laureate writing on subjects critical to understanding social justice as it relates to the Great Lakes region. The work includes writing by 78 poets who represent the diversity of the Great Lakes region. City, state and national poets laureate with ties to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin appear in the anthology, organized around themes from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Ten Ways to Fight Hate: A Community Response Guide, calling on readers to act on behalf of victims of social injustice.
