NOTE: Open mic runs 7:00-8:10 p.m. this month, with featured reading to follow.

Our featured reader for this month is author, playwright, poet, and scholar Dr. Mary Weems. Her work is inspired by the human condition and by what is happening to Black people in America around issues of race, gender and class. To date, Weems has authored or edited thirteen books and her work has been published or produced for nearly two decades. Weems' cultural diversity work is grounded in her imagination-intellect theory which states empathy is an integral part of deconstructing prejudicial biases, being socially conscious, and of discovering the inextricable connection between all human beings. Career highlights include receiving a Wick Chapbook award, being nominated for a Pushcart prize and two Ohioana Book award nominations (2008, 2012) and a Chilcote Award.
