Simply Sherri is back with another collection of the region's best spoken word poets performing works that will make you laugh, snap, clap, and maybe shed a tear. We’ll even invite some members of the audience up to share a short piece during the open mic section. But you can also just kick back with a drink and take in the verbal virtuosity on stage.
