60 Defiant Days from Revolution Books: Talks, Dialogues, Performances—an emergency response, as a fateful election approaches, to this juggernaut moving rapidly towards full-out fascism; an emergency response in order to deepen our understanding of what we are confronting and heighten our determination to act.

October 23, Friday, 7 pm Eastern/4 pm Pacific
A virtual event on YouTube and Facebook: Scholars and Activism at this Decisive Moment in America: The role that scholars can play in this time of racial and electoral upheaval and escalating fascism. Anthea Butler is Co-Initiator of #ScholarStrike. Inspired by the strikes and actions of the NBA, WNBA, Colin Kaepernick, and other athletes, Professor Butler’s one-line tweet brought hundreds of academics and students into action on September 8-9 to underscore the urgent importance of addressing racism and injustice in the United States, canceling official classes and instead carrying out direct actions and teach-ins.

October 27, Tuesday, 7 pm Eastern/4 pm Pacific
Join us for an online evening with Martin Espada: Poet of the Political Imagination. He has published more than 20 books as a poet, editor, essayist, and translator. His forthcoming book of poems from Norton is called Floaters.
