Poets for Ukraine Benefit Reading

May 31, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

$10 – $25

Join us in raising money to provide humanitarian aid and medical relief to injured Ukrainians. Listen in as local poets (including me) read selections from Words for War: New Poems from Ukraine, an anthology of emerging and established Ukrainian voices charting what it means to be in a state of war and how it affects the poetics of a country. Sonya Bilocerkowycz, author of On Our Way Home from the Revolution: Reflections on Ukraine, kicks off the evening with introductory remarks. All contributions go to RocMaidan.

Buy your books at Ampersand and join the conversation. 30% of your purchase of Words for War: New Poems from Ukraine will be donated to RocMaidan.

This is a hybrid event held at Writers & Books, 740 University Ave Rochester NY and streamed via Zoom.

Masks and proof of vaccination are required for on-site attendance.
