MECA Poetry Reading

The Odyssey Bookshop kicked of April's National Poetry Month a little early this year.

On March 26, 2010, eleven poets, including local poet Martin Es
pada, read poems to raise funds and awareness about the current plight of the people, children especially, who suffering a collective political punishment in Gaza. That evening, Moving Towards Home will be raising funds for the Middle East Children's Alliance. The Odyssey was proud to host Moving Toward Home: A reading for Gaza: a Benefit for the Middle East Children's Alliance.

See the slide show below of the night's readers!
