$5 for all day metro pass
Meeting at the GOLDLINE upper level (outside) platform
LA Union Station
Any easy way to join us (and maybe even read your own work), is to ride the metro into Union Station and then switch to the Gold Line. That way you can make parking easier and cheaper, or avoid driving all together.

I had been thinking of nothing lucrative at all, nothing
like pure poetry strawberries as large as the heads of Shih Tzus
or contraband submarines forged in the jungles of Colombia.
What is Poesia Para La Gente?
Poesia Para La Gente (Poetry for the People) is a program that brings poetry to the people of the community, in non-traditional places. Some of these places have been affected, in one way or another, by economical hardship or various forms of social stigmas. All locations are unique in providing a safe setting for uninhibited artistic expression.
Poesia Para La Gente is a program of the Avenue 50 Studio's monthly La Palabra Poetry. The program has been made possible by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation.
Avenue 50 Studio proudly presents...
This time…poetry is riding on the metro!
A one-time event on a Sunday afternoon,
to stimulate and encourage artistic expression
throughout the Los Angeles area…

This isn't the first Poesia Para La Gente reading i've read at. A couple of months ago I got to read with a great set at the first Poesia Para La Gente and Guerro's Market in Highland Park.
I am excited about the group I am getting to read with this time. I've collected videos of of them reading below.
