Notes on the 1944 Rollo Whitehead and Yoko Snapple manuscript as it pertains to the Sept. 24, 2011, Poets for Change Reading, Unbearables division.

During the frantic and understaffed period of penology that occurred during the latter days of WWII, when coed prisons became the norm, alleged saboteur Yoko Snapple and car thief Rollo Whitehead found themselves detained in the same cell in Mule Creek state prison in California. It was there that they composed the famed and long-lost 1944 Agronomic & Philosophical Manuscripts, which along with handy tips on rice cultivation, set out a simple, 878-step plan to achieve world peace and universal sister- and brotherhood.

This MS had been considered destroyed until last year. Quite fortuitously two beatnik academics discovered a copy in deceased poet Allen Ginsberg’s archives, tucked away in a battered converse sneaker shoebox. The finding of this extraordinary MS has forced scholars to rethink the whole history of the 20th century, in fact, to question whether there actually ever was a 20th century!

To celebrate this monumental event, and in connection with the 100 thousand poets for change, the Unbearables will read poetry that reflects and refracts this ground-breaking manuscript on September 24, 2011, at A Gathering of the Tribes, from six to eight in the evening, as they attempt to usher in a new day. Jim Feast will host this event in his usual enlightening and energetic manner.

The list of readers includes:  Steve Dalachinsky, Susan Scutti, Carl Watson, Jill Rapaport, Michael Carter, Yuko Otomo, Thad Rutkowski, Lynn Alexander, ValeryOisteanu, Tsaurah Litzky, Bruce Weber, Larisa Shmailo, Tom Savage, Dorothy Friedman, Ron Kolm, Daniela Gioseffi, Sparrow, Carol Wierzbicki, Mike Topp, Chavisa Woods, Danny Shot, John Farris, Vivian Demuth, Rami Shamir, Nancy Mercado and Brian Boyles.
