Joshua Bennett: An Evening of Spoken Word

When: Fri., Oct. 7, 7 p.m. 2011

For all the wordsmiths, poets and passionistas out there: Make sure you're fighting me for a front seat at Joshua Bennett's free performance at 7 tonight at CC's Armstrong Hall (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., coloradocollege.edu). The performance poet from Yonkers, N.Y., has recited at the White House, the Sundance Film Festival and the NAACP Image Awards. But don't let me ramble on about him. I'll let his words, from an event at his former high school, express a little of who the man is: "I grow more accustomed to not remembering the way I used to smile, back when I still read the dictionary for kicks and wore the same red sweatshirt to school every day. I looked like the world's largest pomegranate, like a mascot for love." — Kirsten Akens
