Event

Andrea Gibson at Boswell
Poet, activist, spoken-word artist, and author of stirring, introspective poetry collections such as Take Me With You and Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns, Andrea Gibson appears at Boswell for a special evening in which they will speak and perform poems from their latest collection, Lord of the Butterflies.

After the performance, Gibsdon will be in conversation with Audrey Nowakowski of WUWM's Lake Effect.

Register for free at gibsonmke.bpt.me. If we are near capacity for this event, Boswell will close to the general public, so be sure to register today! Our ticket-with-book option is no longer available.

Gibson's latest collection is a masterful showcase from the poet whose writing and performances have captured the hearts of millions. The honesty of Gibson's work makes audiences and readers feel welcome as they are. With artful, nuanced looks at gender, romance, loss, and family, Lord of the Butterflies is a new peak in Gibson's career. Each emotion here is deft and delicate, resting inside of imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while giving the body wings to soar.

Andrea Gibson began their career in 1999 with a break-up poem at an open mic in Boulder, Colorado. In 2008, Gibson won the first ever Woman of the World Poetry Slam. Gibson is the author of four previous books of poetry and has released seven spoken-word albums.

Please note that we will check folks in if we near capacity.
Thank you for registering for this event at gibsonmke.bpt.me.
