POETRY FOR THE PEOPLE, featuring ROBERT LASHLEY and an Open Mic

Saturday, November 19, 5 PM:  Poetry for the People continues.  This month includes a very special Poet.  Robert Lashley has twice featured at the Eugene All-Ages Poetry Slam at Tsunami. He will be reading with EJ Koh and Sherman Alexie in Seattle days before his visit to Eugene http://www.elliottbaybook.com/event/sherman-alexie-ej-koh-robert-lashley .“He trades in Shakespeare and Simone, Yeats and Dove, Auden and Three 6 Mafia and razzles and hymns, all with the kind of swagger and strut that asks and offers no apology. The Homeboy Songs (Robert’s first book) is a stunning achievement, announcing Lashley not just as an important poetic voice, but as a new kind of prophet …” - Mindy Nettifee.

His 2015 recital of “Blues for Big Mama” is one of the finest poetic moments ever on the Tsunami stage https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAmWG1dC3G4 .  This is a young man for all Poets.  Please join us.  As ever with Poetry for the People, an open mic is included.  Thank you Laura and Roy!
