It is always an occasion when we are lucky enough to have longtime Boston-area working poet Tatiana M.R. Johnson in the house! Tatiana ran a stellar and carefully crafted workshop for us to start the night, and was a warmly welcoming listener to our star-studded open mic; her feature was an exciting combination of tested work from her book, widely published singles from her latest project, and a grab bag of covers, short treats, and brand-new-on-its-feet-for-the-first-time poems. Lucky you, Cantab.
Next week: we’ll be honored with the presence of the great and awesome Ariana Brown, back for a visit from Texas for the first time in two years! Date Night hopefuls beware: in traditional response to the Friday holiday, our open mic will have a strict No Romance policy, enforced by free romantic-love-trope bingo cards available at the door.
