Derrick Brown, one of the artists who performed during Poetry Jam, visited on April 29 to read more poems from his books “I Love You Is Back” and “Scandalabra.”
Taylor ’10, president of Poetry Club, hosted this coffeehouse event and said she loves Brown’s work.
“He’s poignant and inventive. He creates metaphors and similes that are weird yet super-imaginative. He makes it cool to be a nerd, to be religious,” Taylor said.
During Brown’s reading, Harvey held a bake sale to raise money for Project Spotlight, a community service program for young performing artists.
