Show Up, Speak Out: Greater Boston Writers Resist 1/15

Writers Resist: Write Our Democracy

Five days before Donald Trump swears to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States, on the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr, writers & activists will gather in fifty cities across three continents for a counter-inaugural demonstration: #WritersResist.
Members of Greater Boston’s diverse communities will come together on that day at the iconic Boston Public Library to re-inaugurate a shared commitment to free expression, civil rights, and the values essential to a democracy. Literary organizations and writers will gather at the Boston Public Library at 1:30pm on January 15. The event is free to all, and doors will open at 1:00pm.
The program will include readings and performances by Rob Arnold, Jabari Asim, Liana Asim, James Carroll, Martha Collins, Laura van den Berg, Martín Espada, Danielle Legros Georges, Jennifer Haigh, Krysten Hill, Rachel Kadish, Helen Elaine Lee, Giles Li, Jennifer De Leon, Marianne Leone, Michael Lowenthal, Pablo Medina, Alma Richeh, Paul Yoon, young writers from the Greater Boston area, and special guests. Don't miss this essential opportunity to hear voices of resistance and hope and to collectively ask, "what's next for our democracy?"
