Superior, April 13, 2020: Poems Behind the Walls

Poems Behind the Walls

The Superior Public Library will be hosting “Poems Behind Walls” poetry reading. The reading will be hosted by Procurement Editor of Poetry Behind the Walls, Lucas Alan Dietsche. He and others will read poems written by incarcerated and system-involved youth. Poetry Behind Walls is a project of Save the Kids and is an ongoing book series that provides a medium for system-involved youth to express and encourage themselves through poetry. One Book Northland is teaming up with Clayton-Jackson-McGhie Memorial to provide book readings, movie showings, and events to encourage discussion on the 100th anniversary of three Black men being lynched in Duluth, Minnesota. http://poetrybehindthewalls.org/about-pbw/ and https://savethekidsgroup.org/
