Alice Walker has said, "Poetry is the lifeblood of rebellion, revolution, and the raising of consciousness." Each month Felton Eaddy's Poetry Kitchen explores these themes and more with poets from throughout Atlanta and the region. Come out and experience poets telling their stories, baring their souls, opening our hearts, angering us and challenging us to think, feel, be. Admission: $5 for non-members. Free for Hammonds House Members.
