Sep 15, 2017, 12:00 pm
Poet playwright, and labor activist Rodrigo Toscano visits the Finch Lane Gallery for a discussion of his wok, literary and otherwise, on September 15th at noon. Bring your own lunch and lots of questions.
Toscano is the author of several collections of poetry, including Partisans (1999), The Disparities (2002), Collapsible Poetics Theater (2008), which was chosen for the National Poetry Series, and Deck of Deeds (2012). Collapsible Poetics Theater is also a traveling “test of poetry” for which Toscano serves as artistic director and writer for volunteer performances engaging the intersection of poetry and theater.
