Chapbook release will feature readings from some of the book’s contributors.

Where I Want to Live: Poems for Fair and Affordable Housing is a poetry chapbook anthology project to honor all who participated in Milwaukee's 1967-68 open housing marches and to envision and help build the inclusive community we need. Inclusive of a range of poets and poetic styles, the chapbook serves as a metaphor for the inclusive neighborhoods we value and seek to build. Chapbooks will be available at Woodland Pattern and from the editorial team after the launch. Price: $10.00

This Chapbook was created in response to 200 Nights of Freedom. 200 Nights of Freedom is being organized by March On Milwaukee 50th, a diverse group of volunteers from a broad range of communities. This includes, but is not limited to NAACP Youth Commandos and Council Members, activists, academics, educators, artists, professionals, students and more.
