Lost Horse Press and the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force are teaming up for the fifth year to present a 100 Thousand Poets for Change Poetry and Music Open Mic Night. Writers, musicians, artists and students are invited to share and express their ideas for positive change in the community, ourselves, our country and our world.

The Open Mic Night will take place Saturday, Sept. 30, from 1-4 p.m. at Evans Brothers Coffee Roasters, 524 Church St., in Sandpoint. Register to present a poem or song on the day of the event.

This event is just one of hundreds of individual events planned around the world as part of the annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a demonstration/celebration of poetry, art and music to promote social, environmental and political change. The nonprofit organization first started organizing annual events around the world in March 2011.
