Marty McConnell, one of the “greats” in the world of slam poetry, will be performing here on Wednesday, April 3, during our monthly poetry slam and open mic. McConnell has been a member of seven National Poetry Slam teams, and is the 2012 National Underground Poetry Individual Competition Champion.
In 2011, she completed her first European tour and debuted her one-woman show, “vicebox.” Her work has been published in numerous anthologies, and she is a two-time recipient of the Community Arts Assistance Program grant from the City of Chicago’s Office of Tourism and Culture.
No stranger to Westchester, McConnell received her MFA in creative writing/poetry from Sarah Lawrence College. For nearly a decade, she co-curated the flagship reading series of the New York City-based louderARTS Project. Don’t miss the chance to hear her perform! The program starts at 7:00 p.m. in the library’s auditorium.
If you’d like to take part in our slam or open mic, be sure to come to the auditorium to sign up at 6:30 p.m. Registration closes promptly at 7:00 p.m. The program is free, refreshments are served, and everyone is welcome.
