      Greetings Heather---While there is no single theme for these Performetry events, Michael will be presenting from Whitman's Song of Myself and Carolyn will be reading from her own work. Please note: BloomBars is a family-friendly environment, so we do ask folks to bring work w/o profanity or very adult themes. Join us!
