Bards & Brews Hosted by Hoover Public Library, July 12
The July 12 edition of the Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular Bards & Brews poetry performance/beer tasting series will travel to the Hoover Public Library located at 200 Municipal Drive. Held every month except December, this Bards & Brews will be a SLAM—first place winner gets $200, and second place winner $100. The festivities start 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 local politics.
Craft beer will be available for sampling courtesy of Blue Pants Brewery of Madison, Alabama, and light refreshments will be served. 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 August 2, 2013 at the Avondale Regional Library located at 509 40th Street South. 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.
