• Took place on

FREE, on 4/30 @ 7:00PM at The Union for Contemporary Art, ALL MY PRETTY ONES is a complex union of poetics that is equal parts praise song, invocation, biting humor, and rally cry. McKibbens & Matthews “document motherhood, life and death while celebrating the journey in between.”

This empowering literary event is presented to you by two of the most captivating female poets in the country. New York poet RACHEL MCKIBBENS (author of Pink Elephant & the 2009 Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion) and Detroit poet Airea D. Matthews (author of Hole & two-time Women of the World Poetry Slam Finalist) have joined forces, touring the country with a collection of work that interrogates the structures of power, memory, trauma and gender in the lives of women.

This event is sponsored in part by the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The NWC thanks them for their support!
