Jean Smith is the author of two published novels and the recipient of
two Canada Council for the Arts Awards as a professional writer of
creative fiction. David Lester is a small press publisher of fiction and
award-winning poetry and the author of The Gruesome Acts of Capitalism.
Together, as the legendary rock duo Mecca Normal, they've released 13
CDs (Kill Rock Stars, K Records, Matador).
"How Art & Music Can Change the World" -- Jean Smith and David Lester of
the literary underground rock duo Mecca Normal intend to inspire
audiences to consider adding political content to their creative
self-expression, to fortify a new optimism that cultural activists can
impact progressive social change.
"Arguably the greatest rock band without a rhythm section ever, the duo
of acid-voiced singer Jean Smith and guitar hero David Lester must be
seen to be believed." -- Douglas Wolk
When I started my zine -- Smarten UP! -- back in 1984, I gave it the
tagline "A How to Change the World Publication" -- twenty-five years
later we're heading off on our "How Art & Music Can Change the World"
The focus of the art exhibit is David Lester’s Inspired Agitators Poster
