Lisa Kohn & To the Moon and Back at Book Soup

Join us for an evening with author Lisa Kohn, who will discuss and read from her new memoir, To the Moon and Back: A Childhood Under the Influence..

Born in New York City to hippie parents and raised in the East Village in the 1970s, the author’s early years were a mixture of encounter groups, primal screams, macrobiotic diets, communes, Indian ashrams, concerts and watching naked actors onstage during the musical Hair. By age ten she had pledged her life to the Unification Church (the “Moonies”) and as an adult she struggled to break free from the hold of abuse. Told in spirited candor, and in its full complexity, this book reveals how one can leave behind absurdity and horror and create a life of intention and joy.

Join us to hear author Anthony McCann discuss and sign, Shadowlands: Fear and Freedom at the Oregon Standoff, a Western tale of America in crisis. The author is a poet and writer, and teaches at Cal Arts and at UC Riverside’s MFA program.

In 2016, a group of armed, divinely inspired right-wing protestors led by Ammon Bundy occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of Eastern Washington. The occupiers were seen by a divided country as either dangerous extremists or as heroes restoring the rule of the Constitution. This is a resonant multifaceted story of one of the most dramatic flashpoints in the year that gave us Donald Trump.

Sharing the expansive stage with the occupiers are a host of others: Native American tribal leaders public-lands ranchers, militia members, environmentalists, federal defense attorneys, an Black Lives matter activists. Each is contending in their different ways with the meaning of the American promise of Liberty.

When she finally returns to Petrograd, it is almost unrecognizable, and when she finds the streets teeming with homeless children she takes on the challenge of caring for them—until they become the tool of tragedy from an unexpected direction. Despite her ordeals, betrayals and losses, Marina at last emerges as the poet she was always meant to be.

Da Poetry Lounge SLAM at Greenway Court Theatre

A Poetry SLAM is a competition at which poets perform their original work, and are then judged by five judges. Before competition begins, the host often brings up a sacrificial poet, i.e. one who is not competing in the slam, but is scored by the judges in order to calibrate their judging. After each competing poet performs, judges award a score to that poem. Scores generally range between zero and ten, and the highest and lowest scores are then dropped, giving each performance a rating between zero and thirty points. A single round consists of performances by all eligible poets, but most slams last multiple rounds and many involve eliminating lower scoring poets in successive rounds. There is a time limit of three minutes (and a grace period of ten seconds), after which a poet’s score will be docked according to how long the poem exceeded the time limit.

Come to The Poetry Salon event: Working with Dynamics in Poetry, led by Tresha Faye Haefner, from 10 am to 1 pm.

A great poem will emphasize this struggle and heighten the drama.

So bring your unfinished draft, and a set of boxing gloves, and let the grand match begin!
