EM Press Slam Poetry Series are readings and performances of the best slam poets in the country. Performing abridged works from their poetry books, this series includes the most significant voices in the slam poetry community, including, slam founder Marc Kelly Smith, Louder than a Bomb co-founder Kevin Coval, Marty McConnell, Jack McCarthy, Billy Lombardo, and Regie Gibson.
Marty McConnell's collection is a finalist for the Audre Lorde and Lambda Poetry Awards. McConnell's reading and performance tie together the polarity of today's generation - diverse, interested, and continually reflecting on those who made and rasied us in comparison to how we organize our everyday life. You can hear her smile, cry, and sigh in this collection of brilliantly read poems.
"Worth All the Pennies."
