The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, May 18, 2015 starting at 6:00 p.m. at Bookmans on Grant in Tucson.
This month, Connie Sadler-Nelson, president of Tucson Area Local of the American Postal Workers Union, will discuss the politics and maneuvering to reduce public postal services to provide more room, and profits, for private corporations and Stuart Love, president of Tucson Local 704 of the National Association of Letter Carriers, tells us what is at stake if the pro-corporate Postal Service leadership succeeds in closing Tucson’s Main Post Office, the Cherrybell Station. Both speakers tell us about the fight back against these dangerous efforts.
This will be followed by an open mic that is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!
The event will be held in our new location, the community room of Bookmans Entertainment Exchange at Grant and Campbell in Tucson (1930 E. Grant Rd.), which is in the back of the store behind the children’s literature section. There is ample free parking. Also please note that we will be starting earlier than we have traditionally done — at 6:00 instead of the 6:15 — and will have the room until 7:30.
