Join Soul Sister Revue for its summer show as we ask the question “What does Soul mean to you?” Readers include Ada Limón (The Carrying), Douglas Kearney (Sho), Destiny O. Birdsong (Negotiations), Dr. Grisel Y. Acosta (Things to Pack on the Way to Everywhere), and Shayla Lawz (“speculation, n.”). The event is free, but registration is required.
Social distancing doesn't mean isolation and we can't wait to see you!
