True And Raw Next@19th Presents CHAIku Poetry Featuring Jill Slaughter
Saturday March 17, 2012
137 NE 19 Street
Miami FL 33132
on the campus of Temple Israel’s historic site in downtown Miami.
Next@19th taps into South Florida’s literary pulse with CHAIku, a recurring, free event that brings together writers and enthusiasts in haikus rooted in Jewish identity, culture and community. Taking place at Next@19th’s downtown headquarters (137 NE 19th Street, just east of NE 2nd Ave), the al fresco digs bring new dimension to the soap box experience. Guests are also welcome to share their impromptu 17 syllables, including but not limited to Jew-y haiku. Refreshments are available to spark inspiration and to relieve cotton mouth.
Self-described as ‘always candid, always truthful,’ Jill Slaughter possesses all the complexities of a middle child; the entitlement of marrying into money; the weakness of having lost it all; the broken heartedness of losing a custody battle and the triumph of serenity earned by her persistent, never-ending crawl toward optimism. The dark comedienne is also a painter and in 2011, was named one of the ‘Faces of the Arts of Broward County’. Her website, www.rawcandor.com, is a refreshingly personal window into Slaughter’s life challenges and triumphs.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
