Celebrate Slam! New Book Reception @ Harwood Sunday, 11:30 am - 1 p.m.

Remember how excited you all were about the National Poetry Slam 2005? Remember how proud we were that our team won?

Remember back even farther than that -- remember the folks who started it all -- over 10 years ago at Jack's Lounge, or Best Price Books and Coffee, or drive-by poetry? Remember the greats -- Danny Solis, Kenn Rodriguez, Matthew John Connelly, Lisa Gill, Mitch Rayes, and countless others?

If your memory is fuzzy, or crystal clear, or you have no idea what I'm talking about, you need to do two things:
1. Come to the Harwood Art Center this Sunday at 11:30 am
2. Peruse a new book out from UNM Press -- "A Bigger Boat: The Unlikely Success of the Albuquerque Slam Scene"

It's more than a recounting of our double victory in 2005 -- hosting and winning NPS 2005. It's more than a history of our spoken word community here in ABQ. It's a success story. Your success story. How a city can incubate and support a movement.

And now it's time to celebrate.

Hope to see you there!

(You can also check out more about the book in this week's Alibi.)

I swear that cover gives me a chill. Transports me completely. I can virtually feel the tempurature of the air that week looking at it.

See you Sunday. Very excited about this!
