with Poet Regie Gibson
Friday, APRIL 22 | 11:00 AM
Regie, when you perform, you are supersonic and in the stratosphere, where you can see that the Earth really is a ball, moist, blue-green. Regie, you sing and chant for all of us. Nobody gets left out.” — Kurt Vonnegut
Letter and Spirit: The Rants, Chants, and Coos of a Literary Musician.
Come join Regie Gibson for an afternoon of story, spoken word poetry, music and song.
