Poetry Speaks @ Your
Library featuring two-time Individual World Poetry Slam Champion
The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library cordially invites you to
attend the next Poetry Speaks @ Your Library featuring
Buddy Wakefield, two-time Individual World Poetry Slam
Champion featured on NPR, the BBC and HBOs Def Poetry Jam.
This FREE and open to the public program is scheduled
from 6-8 p.m. on Monday, February 18,
2013 (Presidents’ Day) in the Huntington Meeting Room at Main
Library, 325 Michigan St.
Wakefield’s publications, most recently including Gentleman
Practice and Live for a Living, both on Write Bloody

of his live performance, said Ryan Duckett, Library
Humanities intern and University of
Toledo graduate student.
