Cantab Recap for Wednesday, August 8

Did you make it to Cantab this week, folks? With the slam team out of the way at the National Poetry Slam, there was a little more room on the open (and at the bar) for a great open mic. Cassandra de Alba brought us a perceptive, sweet, and only mostly heartbreaking feature, as promised. Our slam was won by Kayla Wheeler, over a triumphantly tipsy Dawn Gabriel.

This week: we’re back with a feature from Indiana/NYC poet and professor Ross Gay. It’s a rare outing for him to come to Boston, so you won’t want to miss it! We’ll finish the night off with another open poetry slam in the 8×8 series.
