Spoken Word Performance Artists
Return to Ralph Ellison Library

Got something to say?  Looking for a place to say it? 

Come to the Ralph Ellison Library, 2000 N.E. 23rd, on Saturday, April 17 from 3:00 to 4:30p.m. for “Spoken Word Performance.”  A variety of spoken word performers will be on hand to share their thoughts through poetry and prose, and the members of the audience can also step up to the microphone and let their voices be heard as well.

“This event is for people of all ages,” said Michael Eric Owens, Ralph Ellison Manager of Library Operations, “so we’re hoping that some young people will want to bring something to read.  This is a great introduction to public speaking and no one has to hold the stage for very long.

“Plus, it’s just a good way to say what’s on your mind and possibly discover that other people in your community share your concerns, worries and joys.”

For more information about “Spoken Word Performance” please call the library at (405) 424-1437, or visit the Metropolitan Library System’s website, www.metrolibrary.org.
