Monday Night Open Mic Poetry | Special Guest Host Chris August
Shirlington | Robeson | July 30,2012 | 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A Busboys and Poetry Event! For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians, and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all, come with an open mind and ear.

Tonight's host is Christopher August

He is a special educator, writer and activist from Baltimore, Maryland. He has been involved in the national performance poetry community since 2002, and has been published in numerous collections and toured and competed throughout most of the country.
