purchase the Cantab anthology

After twenty years of performing poetry in the basement of the Cantab Lounge, the Boston Poetry Slam finally has an anthology representative of just some of the remarkable work that’s been composed for, in, and about the Cantab. Boston Poetry Slam: 20 Years at the Cantab Lounge was painstakingly compiled and edited by bartender Adam Stone. You’ll find the collection much like his drinks: hefty, well-crafted, and unsurprisingly strong.

The book is printed on demand by the Harvard Book Store. You can stop by to pick up a copy, or order one online. On select Wednesday nights, you can also order one directly from the bartender downstairs.


The release party for the anthology took place on October 15, 2012. Our thanks to Marshall Goff, who was in attendance to document the event and share these photos with you… A few of his photos appear in the book as well.
