Question:  What do Eminem, Jay-Z, Grandmaster Flash, the Sugar Hill Gang, Shakespeare, and Hayden Rhodabeck all have in common? They are poets who possess the unique ability to have words jump off the page and into the ears of their listeners. They make real connections, provoke emotions, and tell stories of tragedy and triumph. They play with words for sport and arrange them in such a way that is both meaningful and memorable. Don't believe me...come to the Poetry Slam and hear for yourself. The event gets underway at 6:00 p.m. on  Wednesday, December 19th in The Idea Hive. Seating is limited so get there a little early to enjoy the snacks, enjoy the company, and enjoy the talent of your fellow creatives.(12/12)
