Guest appearances by noted spoken word artists Alice Shindelar and Tristan Silverman

Cliterati Open No Mic tonight at Charis

Cliteratic Open No Mic, now in its 11th year, brings the best in local and featured spoken word artists to Charis Books & More each month.

Tonight’s special guests are Alice Shindelar of Minneapolis and activist, educator and poet Tristan Silverman.

Shindelar is a recepient of the 2010 Jerome Foundation VERVE Spoken Word grant awarded by Intermedia Arts, the only spoken word grant in the U.S. She also hosts a bi-weekly workshop, “Talk Story Salon,” for poets, storytellers, emcees and performance-based writers. You can also see her work as a volunteer editor for the erotica magazine, Whole Beast Rag.

Silverman “occupies the space where gender, sexuality, Judaism, and art converge. Trained as a documentary filmmaker, screenwriter, and novelist, [his] poetry addresses the humanness of flaw, the fluidity of identity, and the reality of coming of age queer and American.”
