This is an invitation to join the Unbearables and friends as they take part in the international event 100 Thousand Poets for Change by reading their work at the Parkside Lounge.

This event will be free, though there is a two drink minimum –
the Parkside does have two dollar drinks, so we hope this isn’t a problem for anyone. We will also be passing the hat to help with expenses.

We would like to thank Michael Rothenberg for creating 100 Thousand Poets for Change, and for his continued support to poets around the world who participate. Many of the events in other countries will take place on September 30th, but Michael recognized the 30th is also Yom Kippur, so he gave organizers some leeway on choosing another date.
