Oak Lake Writer, Mabel Picotte will be honored in Chamberlain for her writing and for winning the South Dakota Poetry Society Contest (see Jan 10 post below). If you’re in the area, please join Mabel and her community on Saturday, January 28th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm at The Meeting Place, 100 S. Main Street. Mabel will be the featured reader and will be followed by a (family oriented) open-mic.
This event is sponsored jointly by Acting for Justice and the Institute for Healing Racism. Acting for Justice is a theater group organized using the principles and techniques of Theater of the Oppressed. The Institute for Healing Racism is organized to heal the affects of racism and move beyond racism in the Chamberlain area. Members of both groups meet often for potluck meals and discussion on such topics as living organically and sustainably and forming a more understanding, creative, and peaceful community in Chamberlain.
Oak Lakers and others who are in the area, please come out and join Mabel and her local community for a night of poetry and great conversation.
