Client Spotlight - Andrea Gibson

Today’s Client Spotlight features spoken word poet, Andrea Gibson!

Beginning February 25, 2019, Andrea Gibson is touring on their new book, “Lord of the Butterflies”.

In a fierce oscillation between activism and love, Andrea Gibson’s newest literary triumph, Lord of the Butterflies, is a masterful showcase from the renowned poet whose writing and performances have captured the hearts of millions. An artful and nuanced look at gender, romance, loss, and family, this is also a book of protest. While rioting against gun violence, homophobia, and white supremacy, Gibson celebrates gender expansion, queer love, and the will to stay alive. Each emotion in Lord of the Butterflies is deft and delicate, resting within imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while giving the body wings to soar.

Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea Gibson remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today. Known for pulling hearts out of chests to either wrench or kiss, Gibson has authored four full-length collections of poems, an illustrated book of their most memorable quotes (Take Me With You, Penguin 2018), and has released seven beloved albums. Gibson regularly sells out 500+ capacity standing room only venues to eager audiences, mouthing along every word, further popularizing the art form and creating a space for each person in the room to feel, and to heal.

The Colorado Bar Association presents: The Copyright Office Speaks: The Office’s Modernization Efforts and the Music Modernization Act.

The Copyright Office is in the middle of fundamentally changing how it does business to meet the modern needs of its customers and users. It is reconsidering how it functions, how it is organized, and how to adapt new technologies to its users’ needs.  At the same time, Congress is in the middle of its own modernization efforts and is considering major changes to the music laws with the proposed Music Modernization Act. Copyright Office Attorney-Advisor John Riley will discuss where both Congress and the Office are in their modernization efforts, and what it means for you.
