Miss out on Stardust’s Poetry Slam? Read all about it!

Submitted by Sam Zaber & Annie Volmer

On April 17th, Stardust Books and Cafe hosted their first ever Poetry Slam with terrific results. The night featured several local and not-so-local Vermont poets, ranging in age from mid-teens to the golden years. With poems discussing topics from dealing with senior moments to the pressures of jobs to organic living, the audience seemed enraptured with the scenes spun before them.

The judges for the night were three local college students selected for their unique talent of being in the right place at the right time, and all seemed to truly enjoy themselves thoroughly. After hearing all the poems presented (in the tradition of true Poetry Slams, poets were invited to bring two origianal poems, in order to share the full breadth of their talent) the judges voted on a young teen poet who presented two fast-paced, lively poems. The winner was presented with the collected donations from the audience.

The staff of Stardust was very excited with the turnout of poets and audience–the combined total nearly filled up our cozy store.
