    Bards & Brews Poetry Slam at the Gardens

    Presented by at Birmingham Botanical Gardens

    April 5, 2013


    Bards & Brews Poetry Slam at the Gardens

    Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular Bards & Brews poetry performance/beer tasting series will travel to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Usually held the first Friday of each month, the April Bards & Brews will be a SLAM—first place winner gets $200, and second place winner $100. The festivities start at 6:30 p.m. in the lovely outdoor setting of the Hill Garden with live music, and poetry performances start at 7:00. In case of inclement weather, the event moves inside to Strange Auditorium. 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.

    Craft beer will be available for sampling courtesy of Birmingham’s own Cahaba Brewing Company, 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. Look for us on May 3, 2013 at the Avondale Regional Library. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts
