“Squish, squash, sling that slang. I’m always right back at ya, like my…boomerang!”
– Sokka, Avatar: The Last Airbender

Whether you enjoy haikus, sonnets, triolets or blank verse, you can come and enjoy some “poetry in motion” during Metro Art Presents Rush Hour Reading on Tuesday, April 28. The free event, held in honor of National Poetry Month, will take place at Union Station’s East Portal from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will feature readings by Los Angeles-based poets Kate Gale, Robin Coste Lewis, 2012 Los Angeles Poet Laureate Eloise Klein Healy and Los Angeles Poet Laureate Luis Rodriguez.

The poets will be available after for conversation following the readings. Free copies of past Poetry in Motion/LA™ bookmarks will be available to the public during the event. And after you’ve had your fill of poetry, stop by Barista Society for some coffee! Show your valid TAP card for 10% off your espresso drink.

Rush Hour Reading programming is a collaboration between The Poetry Society of America and Metro Art.
