Moonstone Gold Presents:

Spring is for Resistance

For some strange reason we tend to wait until someone dies before we express our gratitude for what they have done. Why Wait? Join us in honoring Leonard Gontarek through a reading of praise poems as well as his own work. Leonard Gontarek is the author of Take Your Hand Out of My Pocket, Shiva, and He Looked Beyond My Faults and Saw My Needs. He teaches workshops with the Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership, coordinates Peace/Works, and hosts The Green Line Reading and Interview Series. Submit Here
