Join us for an evening with Julie Carr, poet & co-founder of Counterpath {Press + Bookstore + Gallery + Performance Space}. Carr will give a talk called On Property and Monstrosity about food justice gardening, gentrification, William Carlos Williams and the poetics of monstrosity. This will be immediately followed by a reading.
