VOX Press Artist Series presents Peach Jam, a celebration of female poets and musicians on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center in Oxford. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8. There is no cover for admission.
The event, produced by Alice Walker and emceed by Jim Dees, will feature poetry by Anne Babson and Kim Vodicka as well as the musical stylings of Holley Peel, Lynn Drury, and Effie Burt.
Peach Jam is an annual VOX Press Fundraiser. Although only a $5 donation for food and drink is suggested, the event is treated like a fundraiser with many opportunities to donate. There will also be a silent auction of works by local and area female visual artists and a raffle with all proceeds going to VOX. Pre-show entertainment includes readings from Salt and music from Morgan Pennington.
VOX Press is a not-for-profit organization supported in part by the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, The Mississippi Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
