Reading Group: Social Poetics

September 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Mark Nowak is coming to talk with Houston DSA on September 17! In preparation, the reading group will be reading the first couple of chapters of his book Social Poetics for our meeting on September 14 at 7pm. If you are unable to afford the book, contact us for a non-distributional copy. And make sure to attend his Author Talk!

Social Poetics documents the imaginative militancy and emergent solidarities of a new, insurgent working class poetry community rising up across the globe. Part autobiography, part literary criticism, part Marxist theory, Social Poetics presents a people’s history of the poetry workshop from the founding director of the Worker Writers School. Nowak illustrates not just what poetry means, but what it does to and for people outside traditional literary spaces, from taxi drivers to street vendors, and other workers of the world.

The Houston DSA Reading Group is open to members and non-members alike. We strive to be accessible to all attendees regardless of background knowledge or expertise. We hope to see you there!
