T-Dot Renaissance and Accents Bookstore presents…POETRY IS NOT A LUXURY SERIES
Starting on Sunday, February 12th, T-Dot Renaissance in partnership with Accents Bookstore will be presenting a new series called Poetry is Not a Luxury.

The first night of the series will feature original works by T-Dot Renaissance members Kim Crosby and Quentin Vercetty (to learn more about them, click here and scroll down to find their bios: http://tdotrenaissance.
