Guest Reader/Performer: Blair
Faner Hall 1325 (Harry T. Moore Auditorium), 8 PM

Blair is a poet/singer-songwriter/performer/spoken word artist whose work, in the words of Metro Times "focuses on the hope that rises from the ashes of despair." Blair is a National Poetry Slam Champion (2002 Team Detroit) and Detroit Grand Slam Champion (2003). He's been named Best Solo Artist by Real Detroit Weekly Readers' Poll and has been written about in periodicals around the country and overseas including Performing Songwriter Magazine, Hour Detroit Magazine and The Bay Area Times.

Allison says: If Richie Havens, Walt Whitman, and Phillip Levine had a literary and musical love child, that offspring would sound like Blair.
