Awake to the World: A Poetry Reading

Indiana Poet Laureate Shari Wagner will host a poetry reading to honor the legacy of Levi and Catharine Coffin and the hundreds of freedom seekers who found refuge in their home. Featured poets will share poems related to social and environmental justice. These poets include Angela Jackson-Brown from Muncie, JL Kato from Indianapolis, and Linda Reising and Jessica Thompson from New Harmony. Audience members are invited to read a poem relating to social justice or the environment at the open mic that follows the featured readers. Refreshment will be provided and poets will be available to sign and sell their books.
Free and open to the public. Admission required to tour the Coffin House and Interpretive Center.
