There's also a Teen Poetry Slam in the Sutton Room at the Main Branch Library Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. To compete in the slam, each teen poet (ages 13-18) comes prepared to perform two of his or her own original poems. Each poet has three minutes to read the poem. Five judges will score each performance. Stop in to watch.
