Triple Poetry Feature
Faldwin J. Bard, 
Frank O'Brien and 
Christopher Fox Graham
Sunday, Nov. 20, 6 to 8 p.m. at
Sundara Boutique & Gallery
22 East Route 66, Flagstaff, AZ 86001

These three poets won the high stakes slam 2 weeks ago, for the right to perform in their own show.
This is that show.
For just $2 you can't NOT show up to hear some of Flagstaff and Northern Arizona's best voices, doing their best work.

Faldwin J. Bard
Faldwin J. Bard is a 21-year-old student who does poetry about everything from garden gnomes, to the trials and joys of being queer.
There are probably other interesting things about Faldwin, but you'll have to talk to him to find out. Or go to this show. Preferably both.
