Slamming poetry, crafty librarians and a must-see art show at Gonzaga


If you celebrated St. Patrick's Day over the weekend at the parade and various festivities around town, tonight offers a chance to keep the party going on the eve of the actual holiday. You can find a lot of options in our events listings and Staff Picks

As I peruse the available activities, here are highlights I found for Monday, March 16: 

WORDS | The Bartlett hosts the Spokane Poetry Slam tonight, in which audience members judge the on-stage talent, and a $50 prize is there for the taking for the most verbally talented performer. 

CRAFTS | Librarian Chris Knopple is leading a class at 6 pm at the South Hill Library that will teach you everything you need to know to make your own Beaded Earrings

VISUAL ARTS | If you haven't made your way to the Jundt museum on the Gonzaga campus to check out the Rattlebone show by local artist Ric Gendron, you really need to do that. Read our story about Gendron and consider a trip today.
