Bold New Poets 

When: Fri., Jan. 6, 5:30 p.m. 2012
Price: free
The poetry reading called Bold New Poets is a big, serious experiment. The event puts 19 poets onstage in the Atkins Auditorium at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (4525 Oak, 816-751-1278) for two long reading sessions. The organizers — the Music and More Foundation and Terance Williams — have set out to prove that the spoken word hasn't lost its artistic cachet, so don't expect bongos, berets, slams, battles or other poetry-reading clichés. Not that you won't laugh. In fact, expect a full range of emotions elicited by readings that feel like stand-up comedy as well as stand-up tragedy. Free and open to the public, the sessions begin at 5:30 p.m. See themusicandmorefoundation.org.
