This show was created by Janaya Martin, in 2016, to promote the literary arts in her Northeast Minneapolis Neighbor hood. Over the course of three season she's had a wide variety of literary artists from the Twin Cities on the show.
In March of 2019, she decided to step down and hand the show over to Tony Plocido of Cracked Walnut (a chapter of the League of MN Poets). Tony has been booking the show ever since. He has the hope to find a permanent host that is a person of color.
This is the all ages show for Cracked Walnut. We are proud to have Coffee Shop N.E. as a partner in this show.
