Kevin Coval Returns to Oakton

Spoken word revolutionary Kevin Coval, founder of Louder Than a Bomb: The Chicago Youth Poetry Festival, reads from his fourth book of poems, Shtick — a sweeping exposition on Jewish-American culture in all its bawdy, contradictory, and inventive glory. Booklist Magazine calls Coval a line crosser and bridge builder — of suburb to city, white to black to Jewish, literature to hip-hop.

A reception with light refreshments will follow the reading.

This program is generously funded by the Oakton Educational Foundation and student activity fees.
