Just Poets Presents

August 15, 2019


Join us  Third Thursday for Just Poets Presents! Voices of Central New York: Laura Williams French and Rachael Ikins. This month we continue our mission of breaking boundaries, offering a platform to the under-heard and marginalized. 

Laura Williams French  published her first book of poetry, The Weight of a Box, in 2018 about the life and loss of her sister from a drug overdose. Her poetry has been featured in the Esthetic Apostle and The Scarlet Leaf Review. Her book of humorous short stories, Wigs, Cars and Sectional Sofas: Surviving Childhood in the 70’s, is forthcoming in 2019.

Rachael Ikins is a Multiple Pushcart and Central New York Book Award nominee, and a 2018 Independent Book Award winner. She is the author of six chapbooks, a full-length collection, a fantasy and a new mixed-genre memoir, Eating the Sun.

History Happy Hour- Witches and Witchcraft

Septmeber 26, 2019


Humans have long believed in magic and that certain individuals, such as witches, can manipulate energy and the world around them. So why did magic become feared in medieval Europe to the point that witches were persecuted on a mass scale? In this class, we’ll explore the roots of magic and witchcraft in the west, how beliefs developed over time, and the turning point of the witch trials that vilified the practice of magic. We will also examine how the stereotype of the witch was created and its continuing impact on our understanding of witches and witchcraft today.

Please note: Each ticket includes one happy hour drink, or a non-alcoholic drink, of your choice. Drinks and mingling will take place from 5:30pm-6:00pm, and the class itself will run from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Students will also receive 10% off dinner at Nox the day of class.
