Friends of the Library offer Beatnik/Poetry Slam

Looking for something new and different?  You can find it at the Baldwin City Library February 23rd at 7:00 p.m.  That's when the Friends of the Library are offering a blast from the past with a new twist: it's Beatnik Night and the Activity Room will be transformed into a hip coffee house, complete with bongo drums, candle lighting, and refreshments offered, appropriately enough, by Jitters.

All ages are invited to share poetry readings, their own work or that of others.  A five minute time limit will be enforced by musical intervention.  No applause will be allowed, but in true beatnik fashion, appreciative finger snapping is encouraged.  While the Friends Board members plan to come in black clothing complete with berets, no costumes are required for participants.  Come one, come all, to enjoy a unique experience of literary fun!
