The Swerve Goes Down The Rabbit Hole

Sat., Oct. 3, 7 pm. A mere $5 at the door.

DSC_9045This October, the Swerve—Mt. Airy Art Garage’s Poetry and Jazz Open Mic—goes down the rabbit hole!

Come one, come all to the Wonderland of Whimsy: Poetry in Celebration of Lewis Carroll. 2015 marks the 150th Anniversary of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland!

Bring your most whimsical, Tea-lightful (and G-rated) poems inspired by Alice and her adventures (in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass), childhood, Lewis Carroll, Snarks, Fairies or life in general to our Open Mic. Your hosts for the evening will be April Lynn James, PhD and her alter ego, Madison Hatta, Sonneteer. They will share selections from their new chapbook, Madison Hatta’s Book of Unreasonable Rhymes (forthcoming from Philly’s own Moonstone Press). Jazz backbeats to the spoken words provided by Tank & Co.

When? So glad you asked! Saturday, October 3 at 7 pm. $5 at the door. Don’t be late for this very important date!

An official Alice150 event. For more on Alice150 celebrations around the world, visit www.alice150.com.

“I could tell you my adventures — beginning from this morning,’ said Alice a little timidly: “but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
