Dear Friends,

We hope you can join us on Saturday, September 25 at 7pm for our first event of the season featuring Jennifer Karmin and John Plueker.

Her multidisciplinary projects have been presented at festivals, artist-run spaces, community centers, a…nd on city streets across the U.S., Japan, and Kenya. A proud member of the Dusie Kollektiv, she is the author of the Dusie chapbook Evacuated: Disembodying Katrina. Walking Poem, a collaborative street project, is featured online at How2. In Chicago, Jennifer teaches creative writing to immigrants at Truman College and works as a Poet-in-Residence for the public schools.

John Pluecker is a writer, interpreter and translator. His work has been published by journals and magazines in the U.S. and Mexico, including the Rio Grande Review, Picnic, Third Text and Literal. He has published five books in translation from the Spanish, including essays by a leading Mexican feminist, short stories from Ciudad Juárez and a police detective novel. A limited-run artist book, Routes into Texas, was published in early 2010.

Agitprop readings are free, but wine and donations to the gallery are always welcome.

We hope to see you there and for festivities before and afterward!
