    Bards & Brews Poetry Slam

    Presented by at Birmingham Public Library - Central Branch

    January 4, 2013


    Bards & Brews Poetry Slam

    Bards & Brews, the popular poetry performance/beer tasting series, is usually held the first Friday of each month from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at various locations in Birmingham. The year 2013 will usher in a new and improved Bards & Brews. The Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular poetry performance/beer tasting series kicks off the New Year on January 4 with a slam featuring BIG CASH PRIZES: first place winner gets $200, and second place winner gets $100. Contestants pay $5 to get in on the action. The program begins at 6:30 p.m. with live music, and poetry performances start at 7:00. Emcee Brian “Voice Porter” Hawkins will deftly guide both novice and veteran poets through an evening of verse with topics that run the gamut from romantic relationships to the local political scene. The program is free of charge and open to the public.

    Craft beer will be available for sampling and light refreshments will be served. Attendees must be 18 years or older to be admitted, and 21 years or older to be served. IDs will be checked.

    Bards & Brews is usually held on the first Friday of the month at various locations around town. The February 1 session will be held at the beautiful Vestavia Hills Library in the Forest and will be open mic. Check out the Bards & Brews page on Facebook for more information. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
