Mary Lambert: An Evening Spoken Word and Music

From her performance in Macklemore's "Same Love" — to her smash single, "Secrets," which launched her to No. 1 on the Billboard Dance charts — Mary Lambert has solidified herself as an emerging and important new voice on the scene. Now, the Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and spoken word performer Mary Lambert can add poet to her list of accomplishments with her debut collection, Shame Is An Ocean I Swim Across. 

Lambert will deliver a spoken word performance, followed by an intimate musical acoustic set. In her new collection, Lambert speaks to anyone who's ever been knocked down―and picked themselves up again. In verse that deals with sexual assault, mental illness, and body acceptance, Lambert provides strength and resilience even in the darkest of times.

This title is available for in-store purchase on Friday, October 12th ONLY. Signed copies will be re-released to the public on its publication date — Tuesday, October 23rd. 

This event will be standing-room only, and entrance is first come, first served. No reservation or ticket is required. Book signing to take place after the performance.
