Slated to take place at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round in Los Angeles, CA, The Poetry Circus will feature the poet laureate of Los Angeles, Luis Rodriguez, and offer readings by an incredible lineup of 32 poets. All thirty-three poets/writers have contributed to the chapbook that will serve as a sort of “program” to guide the audience through the evening’s presentations. There will be haiku balloons, circus performers, crafts for kids, free carousel rides, a book fair, and literary organizations all coming together to create something larger than the sum of its parts: a chance for people of all backgrounds, preferences, political leanings, and/or religious (or non-religious) persuasions to come together to experience, revel in, and celebrate ART that takes WORD as its medium.
Les Figues Press will have a table at the book fair!
