Gawn! A Reading from Gentry!fication: Or the Scene of the Crime

Local poet and graphic designer Chaun Webster drops his latest opus, GeNtry!fication: or the scene of the crime, this week in north Minneapolis. The book is a feast of words and images pondering race, geography, and memory. Webster’s rumination on the theme of displacement, particularly in north Minneapolis, is done through images, text, and critical discourse. As Minneapolis faces gentrification issues, both the book and the reading will offer a lot to think about. For the release party, Webster is joined by performance artist/community organizer Lisa Marie Brimmer, with music from Dameun Strange and Kahlil Brewington.
