Fall College Poetry Slam

Saturday / October 17, 2009 / 7:00 p.m.
Cafe 939

The Fall College Poetry Slam is hosted by Simone Beaubien, renowned slam master at the Cantab Lounge and the coach for the Cantab Lounge Team, which placed 21st in the 2009 National Poetry Slam. Fifteen area college students will present their poetry.

The evening's featured poet is Jack McCarthy, who finished 10th in the 2000 National Poetry Slam. Among his influences Jack numbers Robert Frost, Dylan Thomas, and Garrison Keillor. He doesn't think of himself as a "performance poet," but as a "standup poetry guy," a writer of poems that perform themselves. Poet Stephen Dobyns has written, "Jack McCarthy is one of the wonders of contemporary poetry. He writes—and often performs—dazzling narratives full of wit and humor, sadness and hard thinking. He should be cloned." Jack's major book, Say Goodnight, Grace Notes, was released in 2003 by EM Press to rave reviews. His work has appeared in a number of anthologies, including The Spoken Word Revolution. Of Say Goodnight, Grace Notes, ALA Booklist says, "McCarthy brings his compelling experiences to his poetry with nimble humor, hard-won wisdom, and a raconteur's knack for telling diabolically barbed stories...concrete, candid, personal, and utterly captivating...caustic, sexy and smart."
