We are proud to present Andrea Gibson at the Charleston Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 18 at 8pm! Public On-Sale tickets begin this Friday, July 19 at 10am.

“Gibson’s poems…are forthright and pithy, putting into words the feelings of anyone who has been angry, or outraged, or embarrassed, or in love.” – STAR TRIBUNE

Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea Gibson remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today. Andrea is touring in support of their new book, “Lord of the Butterflies,” printed by Button Poetry.

This is the first piece of the festival! Another schedule announcement is coming next week.

Free Verse Poetry Festival

 This year’s festival will feature poetry + jazz, a poetry slam, pizza, public art, two BIG headliners and … more. Stay tuned.
