About the event

Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, ANDREA GIBSON remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today. Gibson creates a space for each person in the room to feel, and to heal.

In a fierce oscillation between activism and love, Andrea Gibson’s newest literary triumph, released Nov 2018, Lord of the Butterflies, is a masterful showcase that has captured the hearts of millions. An artful and nuanced look at gender, romance, loss, and family, this is also a book of protest. While rioting against gun violence,
homophobia, and white supremacy, Gibson celebrates gender expansion, queer love, and the will to stay alive. Containing imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while giving the body wings to soar.
