Take a night to go out, convene, and converse for an evening before the hectic holidays descend upon us. The VERbAL Gumbo 8-year Anniversary Show is a great way to do all that, and grab a bite to eat. Do you have all kinds of feelings you’ve been dying to share? Add your name to the poetry sign-up list. Or, if speaking in front of a group makes you shake just thinking about it, simply listen to others as they share their stories. Hear the full word here, and get a taste of what to expect here.
