Favorite Poem Reading At BU Central

Inspired by CAS professor and former U.S. poet laureate Robert Pinsky's Favorite Poem Project in [...]1997, BU Today's Favorite Poem reading welcomed students, staff, and faculty to read their favorite poems in an open mic format on the stage of BU Central.

Co-sponsored by BU slam poetry group Speak For Yourself, the event also featured "cover" slam poetry, which was moderated by Adam Stone, the 1998 New England Forensic Interpreter of Poetry Champ, the 2000 Vermont Cover Slam Champion, and the 2000 National Dead Poets Slam winner.
