Jackie Perry was born in Boston and grew up on the south shore of Massachusetts. She graduated with a Master’s degree in Public Health in 2016.

By day, she crunches numbers in spreadsheets for a bunch of doctors and nurses. By night, she attempts to write poetry and then perform it on the open mic at the Boston Poetry Slam. She is a big fan of coffee, penguins, and flying trapeze.

This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. An open poetry slam in the 8×8 series will follow. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
