Charis Books and More/Charis Circle says
What is the #Last13Tour? In early 2014, Paste Magazine published an article listing the last thirteen feminist bookstores in the U.S. and Canada. Meg Day, a poet whose early work and tours were largely supported by independent feminist bookstores and queer-friendly community spaces like In Other Words Bookstore in Portland, Oregon, was eager to use the publication of her first book of poetry, LAST PSALM AT SEA LEVEL as a way to visit the last of these vital cultural stalwarts in hopes of supporting them, learning about their histories, and encouraging other poets & writers to do the same.

Join Meg Day and local poet Sumita Chakraborty in celebration of national poetry month, #thelast13tour, and the very lovely, Last Psalm at Sea Level.
