      EVENT DETAILS
      Poet Andrea Gibson at The Evergreen State College

      Andrea Gibson is not gentle with her truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led her to the forefront of the spoken word movement the first winner of the Women's World Poetry Slam Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality. Her work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV and in 2010 was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature. Now, on her fifth full-length album FLOWER BOY and her second book THE MADNESS VASE, Gibson's poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart's most compassionate room. Performance held at The Evergreen State College Longhouse Cultural Arts Center. Doors open at 6:30pm, the performance starts at 7pm. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Ticket prices are $7.00 for students and $15.00 for community members.
