Sunday, December 18th @ the Poets' Asylum

The Poets' Asylum will be celebrating the holiday season this week with a quick feature by Dave Keali'i. David Keali'i is a Native Hawaiian poet who was born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts. In 2009 he represented Worcester with four other poets at the National Poetry Slam. His work also appears in Assaracus, Radius, and Mauri Ola: Contemporary Polynesian Poetry in English (Whetu Moana, Volume II). He is a Master's of Library and Information Science candidate at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and his first collection is forthcoming from Kuleana `oiwi press.

After the feature we'll be holding a Yankee Swap Slam. We'll provide the worst poems we can find (attached to some of the greatest swag ever) and poet's will battle it out to out perform each other. Bring a friend! The more the merrier. Extra points for festive holiday attire.

Join us for the final Asylum reading of 2011 at the WCUW FRONTROOM (910 Main Street, Worcester) to hear some great words. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts around about 7:00 p.m. No cover; $3-5 suggested donations to support the reading & help pay our "rent" greatly appreciated. Hope to see you there!
