MAY 21ST – 5PM POETRY IN THE BARN
Screening; LOUDER THAN a BOMB, a documentary film about the youth from one of the winning teams participating in Chicago’s annual spoken word competition.
Tod Marshall, Washington State Poet Laureate, Michael Haeflinger of Tacoma’s LTAB, and student poets will be sharing their voices with us as a part of the evening.
“Louder than A Bomb is a great communal poetry event—and communal in the best sort of way: it involves emotional support and coming together around words! I’ve been to one live event (in Tacoma), and I found it stunning—the power of the poetry and the power of how much the students cared about one another. ” Tod Marshall
Copies of selected books of poetry will be available for purchase, as well as light fare and beverages.
