CAPITALISM IS OVER! IF YOU WANT IT: SUMMER OF TOUGH LOVE LAUNCH
Sunday, July 18th, 1 pm
Please join us for the launch of “Capitalism Is Over! If You Want It:
Summer of Tough Love”, a series of interruptions/actions by artists
from around the world in response to the need for a fundamental shift
in our approach to Capitalism and the negative impact it has on the
environment, health, and wellbeing of all. Four Bay Area writers Jenny
Bitner, Hugh Behm-Steinberg, Myron Michael, and Josh Wilson will
respond to these issues through their poetry and prose in the heart of
San Francisco’s shopping district, Union Square (by the tower).
Jenny Bitner is a writer, painter and mother who has been known to
dabble in capitalism, but in her heart is still holding out for
something better. Her website is jennyart.com.

teaches in the writing programs at CCA where edits the journal eleven
