Get Your Literature On 

Tucson Youth Poetry Slam; POG and Friends reading

It's one of those great literature nights in Tucson with two special events to help kick off the season. The first is the Tucson Youth Poetry Slam at Bentley's House of Coffee and Tea, 1730 E. Speedway Blvd. on Saturday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m. This is the fourth season and a great chance for you to get to know a new group of poets. Performer and Borderlands Theatre's new producing director Marc David Pinate will be there along with hosts Araceli Montaño and Logan Phillips. There's a slam workshop and volunteer meeting from 5 to 6 p.m. Free, but donations are accepted. The other event is a POG and Friends reading, 7 p.m. at the Conrad Wilde Gallery, 101 W. 6th St. Who knows what wonders are in store considering this group brings poets and writers together from Casa Libre, Chax Press, the Curiosity Symposium at Casa Libre, the Edge Poetry Series, Kore Press, Stjukshon: an Indigenous Reading Series, and more.
