Bibliophilia is back! Rather than force audiences to sit and listen to four writers simply read from their work for two hours (which can be great!), writer and organizer Jekeva Phillips combines the powers of improv and literature to create wild, dynamic performances. This year features some of the region's best poets and storytellers, including Amber Flame, Donna Miscolta, and Jalayna Carter. If you can't attend the whole festival, I'd check out the Beginning, Middle, and End event on Friday and the Poetry Verse Play: Featuring Amber Flame event on Sunday. In the former, three different artists tell the beginning, middle, and end of a story using three different genres—poetry, prose, and theater. For Poetry Verse Play, a group of improv artists will create a one-act play based on a first hearing of one of Flame's poems. This year, all events will take place at Hugo House, where I'm sure the bar will be open.
