Adina Burke and Bernard Ferguson poetry reading

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Local poets Adina Burke and Bernard Ferguson will spend the evening performing and discussing their poetry on Wednesday, June 28th at 7:00 PM. Adina will recite poems from her autobiographical book "Bird's Eye," and Bernard will perform his dazzling pieces of spoken word.

Come take a seat, let your ears be pleased, and enjoy the beauty that is these two incredibly talented writers.

About Adina
Adina is an individual who doesn't like talking about herself very much and instead insists on writing about herself. Born in 1990 with a sweet taste in her mouth for cynical and dry wit, such characteristics can be found in her work and overall demeanor. Much to her credit, she has found a way to make this seem incrediblely endearing.

About Bernard
Bernard Ferguson is a Bahamian immigrant still trying to plant his feet in Minnesota. He enjoys devoting his time to volunteering and performing at local poetry slams. He thinks poetry as an art form is ready and willing to do some of the work the world needs these days. Bernard writes about love and immigration, his favorite characters, the sun, and grief. He’s been lucky to have his work featured by a few kind and thoughtful publishers. He has a list of favorite poets that he's eager to share with you.

This event is free and open to the public, however, there is a parental advisory for strong language and adult themes.
