Poetry without Borders: Echoes of '68: Protest, Resistance, and Empowerment

Wednesday, March 21 at 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Foster Auditorium

Are you interested in experience a night of multicultural and multilingual poetry with Penn State students and faculty from all different backgrounds and research fields? Then please join us for Poetry Without Borders on March 21st, 6-7pm in Foster Auditorium (Paterno Library). Now in its 6th year, PwB is a poetry reading forum that brings together faculty and students from across the university to expose the audience to the power of poetry from different languages and cultures. The 2018 theme is "Echoes of '68: Protest, Resistance, and Empowerment", an inspiration for the readers to use poems that commemorate the 1968 student protests and the impact they have had on political and social movements up to the present day. 

We are also looking for readers who can contribute poems from a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds. For more information, visit
