The Union County Commissioner Board invites residents and visitors to enjoy a live performance of Shout! by Susanna Rich on Wednesday, April 14, at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom, in celebration of National Poetry Month.

Shout! is a collection of Rich’s original poetry, retelling the struggle of women’s suffrage and equality during key historical moments.

“We are proud to honor the women’s suffrage movement as we celebrate National Poetry Month,” said Commissioner Board Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “Their fight for equal rights was the work of generations, and their story is still relevant today.”
