More Info
The Rio Grande Valley will be one of the hosts and participants of the global event, “100 Thousand Poets For Change,” being held simultaneously on Sept. 24 in 650 cities and 95 countries as part of the largest poetry reading in history to promote environmental, social, and political change. 

A “flash mob poetry reading” is planned for 8 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24, at the McAllen Creative Incubator (1001 S. 16th St., McAllen, Texas.)

Poets reading in the Valley will be focusing on local environmental issues and speaking against the proposed expansion of the Border Wall, which is cutting off access to ecotourism for the region as well as cutting off access to water for ocelots and other felines and other mammals, cactus wrens and other birds, such as chachalacas.
