4/9: She Speaks at Visible Voice Books



Whisper to a Scream is a Cleveland-based feminist performance-art collective with open-end membership — which means anyone can participate. To encourage that involvement, the group is kicking off a monthly series of themed open-mic events called She Speaks, in which women are invited to sign up for five-minute slots to offer a prose or poetry piece (either original or by a favorite author). This month’s event revolves around the topic of healing. In addition to whoever shows up, it will feature readings by two guest poets: Kisha Nicole Foster (of Black Poetic Society) and Tru Poetry. It takes place in the upstairs meeting room at Visible Voice Books (1023 Kenilworth Ave.) from 7-9 p.m. Come early to sign up for a performance slot. It’s free to perform or listen. — Anastasia Pantsios
