Bards & Brews Returns to Central Library in June
The Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular Bards & Brews poetry performance and beer tasting series is scheduled for Friday, June 1, 2012 at the Central Library located at 2100 Park Place. The program which will be an open mic begins at 6:30 p.m. with live music and poetry performances start at 7:00. 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, along with light refreshments. 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 July 6, 2012, at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Check out the Bards & Brews page on Facebook for more information. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
