Start off your weekend right at the Jesup Memorial Library’s Verse Unleashed! Poetry Slam on Friday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. This is a perfect time to share your own work, rehearse your verse or share work that inspires you. Unlike traditional slams, the Jesup’s slam is about community, camaraderie and celebrating different types of poetry. It’s not a competition. For more information, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
