Open Mic & Share Poetry feat Douglas Smith

Douglas Smith has been a social worker and community organizer for more than 40 years, in Chicago, Detroit, Ypsilanti, and now western Washtenaw County. His newest book of poetry is Social Work & Other Myths,  a "poignant expression of compassion. These poems beseech us to identify with the humanity in the desperate, the afflicted, the abandoned, the evicted and the exiled.. Smith is a poet who creates an awareness that burrows into you and changes how you see.” (Brian Cox) .

The event begins with an Open Mic session when area poets can read their own work or share a favorite poem by another author in a welcoming atmosphere. This is part of a monthly series on the 2nd Thursday of most months in partnership with Les Go Social Media Marketing and Training. Signing to follow.
