Poetry Slam at the Coffeehouse!

Perform at the Crowell Public Library’s
Poetry Slam at the Coffeehouse!
Barth Community Room
Wednesday April 14th at 6pm

April is National Poetry Month—what better way to celebrate than by attending or performing at the Crowell Public Library's second annual poetry slam?! Teens and adults from the greater San Gabriel Valley will have an exciting opportunity to deliver dynamic poetry performances in a coffeehouse setting—complete with live acoustic guitar music played by local talent Rick Valladares. We will serve refreshments--and coffee, of course!

What exactly is a poetry slam? A poetry slam is a competition, a performance, entertainment, excitement, art. Everyone will have an opportunity to perform in front of a panel of judges. Never been in a poetry slam? This is your opportunity to shine!

Teens and adults ages 12 and up are invited to take a chance, get inspired, be creative, entertain, perform, slam! Registration is required of participants--first come, first served; call (626) 300-0777. Performers must have original pieces reviewed by staff before event begins. Prizes will be awarded in two age categories. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Crowell Public Library.
