Local artist and Bend's only "Slam Poet Laureate" Jason Graham will be the guest reader at this month's Second Sunday. Graham will be performing on Sunday, March 9th at 3:00 pm in the Brooks Room of the Bend Public Library. This program is free and open to the public.
Although born in 1983 in Chicago, Graham has been a resident of Bend since he was nine years old. He is known in the community for his riveting performances and charismatic stage presence. Graham says "I have been on stage every year for over twenty years, written poetry since the age of nine-ish, have recently added music over the last five six or seven years depending on how you look at it." Truly a renaissance man, he considers not only writing and music his passions and livelihoods, but also painting and other mixed-medium art.
