The event will take place on Wednesday, February 17, between 8 and 9 pm, on Zoom.

Message from poet Ari Satok:


"Before the pandemic, I used to give lots of book talks for all kinds of groups about the two books I've written, “The Architects of Hope” and “The Beautiful Chaos of Growing Up.” Because in-person book talks likely won't happen for a while, I've launched a project called "Around the World in 80 Zooms" with the aim of doing 80 virtual poetry readings for 80 different communities around the world.
I've specifically been writing lots of poems about the pandemic, and so in these poetry readings, I read a number of those. Readers have found them really helpful in emotionally processing and reflecting on what we’re going through as a world right now. I also facilitate a few reflective exercises as I read them. And then I create space for the audience to share poems of their own that they’ve written in these times or other poems that have been helpful to them. I’ve done in all different countries including Nepal, Bangladesh, India, and Peru, and they've been really joyful.”

About Ari Satok:


Ari Satok is an author, speaker, and educator, who believes in the power of stories to make the world a better place.
Ari grew up in Toronto, Canada. He is a magna cum-laude graduate of Princeton University. Following his graduation, he received a grant to embark on a year-long storytelling project, through which he traveled to international high schools all around the world, interviewing young people from dozens of countries on a mission to capture their powerful stories.
He received a follow up grant to turn his project into a book. The book, titled The Architects of Hope, captures, through poems written by Ari, the stories of sixteen of these young people, all related to the theme of hope.
Since publishing his first book, Ari has given talks and led workshops related to the book in a wide range of different communities. He has presented to audiences domestically and abroad, including college groups (at schools such as Harvard, Princeton, Yale and Brown), high school and middle school groups, seniors' residences, and non-profit groups. His talks celebrate the beauty of diversity and the power of young people to impact their own communities.
Ari has also taught courses on storytelling and social justice and leads a weekly writing workshop at a New York City seniors' residence.
He prides himself on being endlessly curious and is always excited to find others who share his passion for storytelling and writing!
