Susan Lamont, Working Class Blues, 100 Thousand Poets for Change at Gaia’s Garden, January 22, 2016

Organizer: Susan Lamont

Contact: peacenik@sonic.net
The next 100 Thousand Poets for Change is Sunday afternoon (exact time later), January 22nd. That is two days after the Trump inauguration (shudder). The official theme is Working Class Blues and we’ve had a few sign-ups already. I expect some presidential politics will sneak in as well what with these themes being rather closely connected. Some of you just might have something to say! Let me know! – Peace, Susan
