7:00 p.m.
Homewood Studios, 2400 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis 55411

African- American, Hmong, Japanese-American, Jewish and White Earth Anishinabe writers explore how the stories of their parents, grandparents and historical communities impact the writers' own lives. From the ridiculous to the tragic, the writers examine the legacies of the Holocaust, war, racism and genocide.

The Readers: Carolyn Holbrook, Mai Neng Moua, Margie Newman, Marcie Rendon, Joan Maeda Trygg.

Admission: Five dollars includes a chapbook containing work by the five writers. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

This project was made possible, in part, with the support of Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council, an initiative of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, and with the support of the St. Paul JCC.

This project is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
