Friday, April 26 @ 7pm
Plymouth Congregational Church
1900 Nicollet Ave | Minneapolis

Come hear Carolyn Forché tell the powerful story of a poet who becomes an activist through a trial by fire. Her new book, What You Have Heard is True, is a devastating, lyrical, and visionary memoir about a young woman’s brave choice to engage with horror in order to help others. Written by one of the most gifted poets of her generation, this is the story of a woman’s radical act of empathy. FREE and open to the public! Co-sponsored by Literary Witnesses and Rain Taxi. Birchbark Books will be there with books available for purchase.
