Louder Than a Bomb (LTaB) Kansas City gives a teenager a pen, a page, a mic and a stage. Then we step out of the way to watch a poet emerge and a community grow. LTaB is an annual city-wide youth poetry festival with a hip-hop aesthetic celebrating young poets in the Kansas City metro.
This spring more than 15 teams representing schools and community organizations compete for a spot at the national festival Brave New Voices 2019.
Join us on Saturday, March 2, at the Central Resource Library, 9875 W 87th St., Overland Park, for a series of preliminary bouts with schools from across Kansas City. Sessions start at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
