Motor Signal: Imaginary Worlds

Join us for our May Motor Signal event! Motor Signal is a monthly reading series that jolts the poetry and prose reading out of its conventional form.

This month’s event will explore alternate visions of reality. In radically re-imagining society, how are people empowered to reframe dominant narratives? This evening’s featured reader is Adrienne Maree Brown and will include live painting by Ashley McFadden as well as a silent auction. Open to the public with a $5 suggested donation.
