Mar13: Poets Against War Reading & Open Mic

Albuquerque Poets Against War Presents An Open Mic with Featured Reader Margaret Randall reading from her new book, Something's Wrong with the Cornfields.


'Better than a memoir, Margaret Randall's collection of unpublished poems celebrates the

lives she has  observed, of workers and oppressed  peoples, as well as poets and intellectuals. The passion expressed in Meg Randall's long  career as a poet, editor, and activist comes tumbling out of this huge collection, brimming over the edges of every poem.'

– Diane Wakoski
