Local author invites community to monthly open mic

Tiffany Blanchette

David Lythberg, of Bourbonnais, invites the community to The Poet's Arrow, a recurring event on the third Tuesday each month in the Kankakee Public Library's fourth-floor auditorium.

The open mic event offers a venue where artists in the different arenas of rap, song, poetry or spoken word can show off their respective talents. In this proclaimed judgment-free environment, The Poet’s Arrow is a place where performers are not only welcomed, but are encouraged to freely express themselves as they take on the mic. Attendees need not perform, but are invited to listen to an array of local artistry.

The event is open and free to the public. "Follow the arrow from words to minds to hearts," reads the event tagline.
