Write America: Lindsay Adkins and Wally Marzano-Lesnevich

Join us for the eightieth episode of Write America on Monday October 24th featuring Lindsay Adkins and Wally Marzano-Lesnevich as they read and discuss their works- intimating how the deep divisions in the country may be healed by the quiet power of art.
This event is free to attend- please use zoom link below.

We are now hosting our episodes on Zoom, rather than Crowdcast. This will make it easier on the authors and poets who are, by and large, more familiar with Zoom than Crowdcast. We will have one set of links a month to start out- see below. Your purchase of a book helps support this program.
