Get ready to laugh, poetry fans! Members of the 2018 Toronto Poetry Slam Team will be performing in a two-round poetry competition, known as a "slam", and the funniest poet will be crowned winner! Judges selected randomly from the audience will score each poem between 0 to 10.
The 2018 Toronto poetry slam team is emblematic of the tenacity, vibrancy, heart, and drive that make Toronto a city of possibilities. Amoya Reé, Gavin Russell, Jennifer-Alicia, Cassandra Myers, and Gabrielle come together to represent their city at the National Poetry Slam in Chicago and the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Guelph.
Free and general admission. Downstairs at Lillian H Smith Library. 6pm to 730pm.
Hosted by Dave Silverberg.
