Slam Poet Rachel McKibbens in Nebraska Next Week!

PSR loooves slam poetry more than almost anything else (see our last issue, in which we interviewed Matt Mason!). We've seen quite a few really impressive poets perform, but we're practically dying of excitement right now, because the amazing Rachel McKibbens is coming to do some shows in Lincoln and Omaha, October 8-10.

From her website:
Poet Rachel McKibbens is an ex-punk rock chola with five children. Known for her astonishingly visceral stage presence and devotion to craft, McKibbens has become one of the most respected poets in the spoken word community. She is the 2009 Women of the World poetry slam champion, is an eight-time National Poetry Slam team member, a three-time NPS finalist, and a 2007 New York Foundation for the Arts poetry fellow and Pushcart nominee.
