POETRY ALIVE 
Celebrates 30 Years
of Presenting Poetry Performance Like Nothing Else

Fri Aug 15th  2:00pm until ......
Tickets: $12 


The City of Asheville has proclaimed August 15th as "Poetry Alive! Day" !!!!!!

Founded in 1984, Poetry Alive! conducted its first show in a music hall called McDibb's in Black Mountain, North Carolina. The audience was made up of about 100 listeners, friends mostly. One audience member was a teacher who saw the educational potential of the show and subsequently asked Poetry Alive! to visit her classes. That was our simple start.

In the nearly 30 years since then, Poetry Alive! has added four other two-person teams to meet the demand for shows. Our presentations have taken us to a total audience of over 10 million, in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, Argentina, the Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, China, Guam, Ethiopia, Japan, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saipan, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, and Venezuela. Each year Poetry Alive! now conducts approximately 2,200 performances, over 700 classroom followups, and 100 teacher workshops for an estimated 600,000 students nationwide.

That's something worth celebrating and that's exactly what we plan to do.....lots of great stories from the past plus lots of great poetry ....old and new.
