S.A Griffin's Poetry Bomb - Monday May 31

Celebrate Memorial Day with a true memorial to the poem, as acclaimed poet, journalist and actor S.A. Griffin brings The Poetry Bomb to SPC.

What's the Poetry Bomb?

"The Poetry Bomb is a former U.S. military practice bomb. The artifact will be completely converted into a beautiful object filled with poetry from around the world. When finished, it will have a primo paint job just as if it were a classic car, complete with pin-striping. It will also have a window or portal that will open and close making it possible to not only see inside of the piece, but to take poems out at performances to read out loud, and to add future submissions." (from the fundraising incubator site Kickstarter)

Griffin is now taking take The Poetry Bomb on tour across the United States. Next stop: Sacramento. Sure, you can check out The Poetry Bomb online, but don't miss this event. Frank Graham hosts on May 31st - 7:30 at SPC.
