“This event is coming to the OC in one month. You should come to be both entertained and inspired. The line-up of artists is stellar. Marcus Omari; Bridgette Bianca; Natalie J Graham; Audrey Brooks and Jason Chu are going to speak to the heart of what matters. Reggie Goodjoin's trio will bring passion through song and Nick Williams' live visual art will add depth and meaning to this social justice event. Stay tuned for more info.” - From Darlene Kriesel
Armory Center for the Arts is pleased to present Valises for Camp Ground: Arts, Corrections, and Fire Management in the Santa Monica Mountains. This exhibition features ten small, mixed media travel suitcases (also known as "valises") created during a long-term collaboration between artist Kim Abeles and the female inmates of Camp 13—a correctional facility in the Santa Monica Mountains for women who are trained and deployed to fight forest fires throughout the region.
Armory Center for the Arts is located at 145 North Raymond Avenue in Pasadena, CA. The Armory's Community Room Gallery is open daily 12:00 to 5:00 PM (closed Tuesdays and holidays). Admission is always free.
A closing reception is scheduled for Saturday, September 29, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM and will feature readings by seven local poets reflecting on wildfire, community, wilderness, and memory. Poets include Bridgette Bianca, Yvonne M. Estrada, Eric Howard, Beverly Lafontaine, Alicia Vogl-Saenz, AK Toney, and Terry Wolverton. The poetry reading will begin at 4:30 PM. Both the reading and closing reception are free and open to the public.

The Ovary Office was founded by V.Kali, the poetry director at The World Stage. The Ovary Office features female poets who read strong, activist-based, shameless poetry that places the pussy, front and center (so to speak.) We read in a “court-like” setting bringing up “witnesses” or demanding “order in the court.” The group’s first performance was last year’s LitCrawl. Readers include founder, V Kali, organizer Pam Ward, Bridgette Bianca and Jaha Zainabu. The group formed at a Harriet Tubman reading at The World Stage in Leimert Park considered the mecca of art / music / literary art.
All are welcome! Bring a friend or two and enjoy an evening of poetry hosted by The Verbal Coliseum. Coffee and tea will be available. ☕️
Open Mic Sign-Ups will be located at the front of the venue. Performers will be able to read one piece lasting 3 minutes or two short pieces that also total no more than 3 minutes.

My Lit Box is excited to announce our inaugural book club meeting where we will discuss Speak No Evil by Uzodinma Iweala.
“A wrenching, tightly woven story about many kinds of love and many kinds of violence. Speak No Evil probes deeply but also with compassion the cruelties of a loving home. Iweala’s characters confront you in close-up, as viscerally, bodily alive as any in contemporary fiction.”—Larissa MacFarquhar
Admission and parking are FREE and light refreshments will be served. RSVP here and we will see you there! | Location: Art Share L.A., 801 E 4th Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90013
