While most of the audience temporarily seeks shelter under awnings to escape a brief rain shower, TALK's adult advisor, Steve Ploum endures the weather to listen to a performer at the organization's spoken word festival Saturday.

The lives and thoughts of local poets echoed across Dixie Highway in Homewood Saturday, peppered with rain but propelled by passion. 

Spoken Effect organizers Maggie Colton, left, and Raina Kalas introduce the event to the audience Saturday. 

Spoken Effect was an event sponsored by Theatre . . .
