IDRIS GOODWIN is an award-winning playwright, poet, essayist and performer who uses hip hop arts to create original genre defying performances. His widely produced works have been supported by the The National Endowment for the Arts, The Ford Foundation, The National New Plays Network, The Hip Hop Theater Festival and The Illinois Arts Council. What Is They Feedin’ Our Kids?, Idris’ most popular spoken word poem, aired on HBO’s Def Poetry and The Discovery Channel's Planet Green. Break Beat Poems, his latest hip-hop album, earned praise from The New York Times and National Public Radio and These Are The Breaks, his debut collection of prose, was nominated for a Pushcart Award. Year round, Idris can be found at colleges, K-12 schools, and community organizations across the country promoting cross-cultural literacy and social awareness.

Join us for this special Minneapolis book release for These Are The Breaks. Joining Idris will be special local opening poets Guante, Lisa Brimmer, and Ed Bok Lee.
