Visit the mobile site for B2TB
In conjunction with the National Beat Poetry Festival, a New Orleans poetry event, Born to the Beat is in the works. The poetry and prose reading is set for Saturday, September 12, outside Morning Call Coffee Stand at City Park, New Orleans, 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (inside if it rains).

Some of the poets who will be reading are former Louisiana poet laureate Julie Kane, Dillard University professor and poet Mona Lisa Saloy, Kelly Harris-DeBerry, Carolyn Hembree, A Scribe Called Quess?, and John Gery. Local Indie band The Shiz will provide music, and Nordette Adams will be joined by Megan Burns and Alex Jennings as emcees.

It's free! So, if you'd like to attend why don't you let us know on Twitter (@BeatPoetry504) or Facebook.

There's more to say, but until next time . . .
