Felicia Rice & Theresa Whitehill: Heavy Lifting, Listening Tour
April 15, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Heavy Lifting Listening Tour is coming to the Coast Community Library Community Room in Point Arena on Saturday, April 15 at 2 pm, with guest Sidney Regelbrugge, Mendocino County Youth Poet Laureate.
The Heavy Lifting Listening Tour aspires to offer opportunities for healing, and dreaming, through dialogue. An introduction to the project opens a display of the artists’ book and of the experimental film, On Heavy Lifting, that accompanies the book. This is followed by a conversation between poet Theresa Whitehill and the audience in which she alternates reading her poems with an invitation for audience members to read their own work or share brief stories in response to the themes and material.
It kicks off in March 2023 in Caspar and will occur monthly in communities impacted by the wildfires throughout northern California in 2023.
