Ken Sanders Rare Books presents…

100 Thousand Poets and Musicians for Change!
Saturday, October 20, 2012 | 7:00 – 9:00PM

Ken Sanders Rare Books is pleased to announce 100 Thousand Poets and Musicians for Change, a reading and performance with 18 local artists on Saturday, October 20th at 7:00PM at our downtown bookstore (268 South 200 East, Salt Lake City). Please join us to hear the voices of these amazing local artists: Hector Ahumada, Michael McLane, Sandy Anderson, Marv Hamilton, Brian Kubarycz, Alex Caldiero, Andy Hoffmann, Sara Caldiero, Heather Hirschi, Steve Creson, Chris Leibow, Lance Newman, Tully Cathey, Shari Zollinger, Adam Love, Gray Thomas, Rebecca May, and Nate Liederbach.

100 Thousand Poets and Musicians for Change is a grassroots organization that brings communities together to call for environmental, social, and political change within the framework of peace and sustainability. An event that began primarily with poet organizers, 100 Thousand Poets for Change has grown into an interdisciplinary coalition with year round events which includes musicians, dancers, mimes, painters and photographers from around the world.

Local issues are still key to this massive global event as communities around the world raise their voices on issues such as homelessness, global warming, education, racism and censorship through concerts, readings, lectures, workshops, flash mobs, theater performances and other actions.

“Peace and sustainability are major concerns worldwide, and the guiding principles for this global event,” said Michael Rothenberg, Co-Founder of 100 Thousand Poets for Change. “We are in a world where it isn’t just one issue that needs to be addressed. A common ground is built through this global compilation of local stories, which is how we create a true narrative for discourse to inform the future.”
