Ales and Ideas at Fort George Brewery

November 4 @ 7:00 pm

Ales and Ideas promo

: Fort George Public House and Clatsop Community College Announce Ales & Ideas November 4, 2021 at 7pm. “Poetry is Not a Luxury”: Poems & Contemplations with CCC Writing Instructor Nancy Cook & friends.

“Poetry is not a luxury,” wrote Audre Lorde in 1977. “The quality of light by which we scrutinize our lives has direct bearing upon the product which we live, and upon the changes which we hope to bring about through those lives.” The words of self-described “black lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” Audre Lorde, along with the auspicious occasion of Pulitzer Prize poet Jericho Brown’s visit to Astoria, inspired CCC Writing Instructor Nancy Cook to prepare this evening of readings, performance, and contemplations about the importance of poetry in our diverse communities and in her own life as a mother, teacher, climate-justice advocate, and aspiring anti-racist citizen.  One need not be a poet to enjoy this celebration of the power of words in our worlds today. Come learn about compelling trends in contemporary poetry—on the page, and in traditions of spoken word and multimedia performance. Consider poetry’s role in the evolution of languaging in our multicultural nation. Get excited for Jericho Brown’s visit, and even try your own hand at a simple poem.

Clatsop Community College is pleased to follow Fort George’s lead in returning to LIVE audiences for this year’s Thursday Night Talks. An audience cap of 50 will be enforced, to include physically distanced seating.  Face coverings are required, except while actively eating or drinking.  Doors open at 6pm, with food, ales, and other beverages available; no purchase necessary.
