Portland reading series Salon Skid Row (Josh Lubin, host and curator) teams up with KMA Sullivan, (Publisher of YesYes Books), to curate a timely, topically themed showcase: The State of the Nation: With the presidential election happening Tuesday, November 8th, and since this particular election cycle has been the source of so much public concern, anxiety, and even outrage, readers at this showcase will share their thoughts, and offer their unique perspectives as artists - through poetry and prose - on the current state of politics and America. Josh Lubin and KMA Sullivan will be co-hosting this showcase, featuring Robert Lashley, Jennifer Jackson Berry, Jenn Marie Nunes, and Jamie Mortara, with a video installation and media content curated by Reed Banals.
