VERSeFest begins tonight

Quincy Troupe reminds us that poetry began as song. It was performance. Troupe and other African-American poets still invoke the tradition of the griot, the roving troubadour who sang his poetry to villagers. “Language is a living thing,” Troupe says. “It feeds on the living language of a community.”--The Language of Life, a festival of poets, Bill Moyers


Tickets are available at Collected Works, the Manx Pub and the Arts Court Box Office.
