Poet Paints Pictures with Words
E-Baby, spoken word poet, brings his artistry to Penn State York Thursday, Feb 8 at 7 p.m. E-Baby will paint pictures with words, not a brush, in the Sparky & Clark’s Coffee Bar located on campus in the John T. and Paige S. Smith Atrium connecting the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center and the Lee R. Glatfelter Library. The performance is free and open to the public.
Blending a unique fusion of rap and poetry, Washington, D.C. native E-Baby’s realistic, funny, and caring style of poetry engulfs audiences of all ages, races, and personalities. He will perform poems from his latest CD, My Thoughts Are in This Ink.
E-Baby’s credits boast the 2001 Blackwoodsonline.com Grand Slam Champion; 2005 Capitol Jazz Fest Poetry Slam second place winner; 2002 Poetology.com third place winner; and 2003 Nuydrican Poet’s Café semi-finalist.
Known as a poet that gives complete silence its own sound, E-Baby’s performance is sponsored by Penn State York and the York Newspaper Company as part of the campus’ free cultural and performing artists series.
