Birmingham Library offers bards and brews today

Posted: Updated:

The Birmingham Public Library is kicking of the first Friday of this month with its popular Bards & Brews event.  The poetry performance and beer tasting series will be held at Birmingham Botanical Gardens on Friday, April 5, 2013.  The Gardens are located at 2612 Lane Park Road. Usually held the first Friday of each month, the April Bards & Brews will offer first a place winner $200 and second place winner $100. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the outdoor setting of the Hill Garden.  Live music and poetry performances will start at 7:00.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the Strange Auditorium.

Brian "Voice Porter" Hawkins will emcee the event and guide both novice and veteran poets through an evening of verse with topics that run the gamut from romantic relationships to the local political scene.

Craft beer will be available for sampling courtesy of Birmingham's own Cahaba Brewing Company, and light refreshments will be served.  Attendees must be 18 years or older to be admitted, and 21 years or older to be served. IDs will be checked.

Bards & Brews is usually held on the first Friday of the month at various locations around town. Look for us on May 3, 2013 at the Avondale Regional Library located at 509 40th Street South. Check out the Bards & Brews page on Facebook for more information. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
