About Pièces de Résistance

You can help AQR reach new literary milestones. Please mark your calendars for Pièces de Résistance, an extraordinary benefit series celebrating AQR’s 40th anniversary.  Join us for 21 free, live online readings and conversations, featuring 58 exceptional new, emerging, and established poets and writers who have appeared in AQRPièces de Résistance runs from October 4, 2020 to May 2, 2021 hosted by the Anchorage Museum and moderated by author Heather Lende and AQR Co-Founder and Editor Ronald Spatz.

While all of the Pièces de Résistance events are free, we hope you’ll consider making a tax-exempt donation to support AQR through our 501c3 affiliate, the Center for the Narrative & Lyric Arts.
