On Sunday, Wesleyan faculty member (perhaps not teaching this semester?) Kate Rushin will perform poetry/spoken word at the Green Street Arts Center. This is a new Sunday Salon Series. $5 suggested donation includes a modest wine & cheese reception. Not sure if wine can be served to students or not but there will be other beverages.
Name: Kate Rushin–THE LONG WAY HOME
Date: Sunday, September 24,
Venue: Green Street Arts Center
Rushin traces her relationship between her poetry and her creative process from childhood prayers to snapshots of her Black working class community to social commentary—her poems are “ways of seeing” and understanding her world. The reading will consist of a variety of poems including excerpts from her most recent project, Stand, which uses improvisation, humor, wordplay and sampling. It is inspired in part by the music of Nina Simone and Sly Stone and the poetry of Harryette Mulle.
How to get to Green Street: If you come down Church to Main St., Green St. is 5 blocks down on your right and you can see the Center from Main St.
