7 pm
at
Poetry Express
Himalayan Flavors
1585 University Ave.

I’ll be part of a release party for the 2017 issue of PoetryExpressed.com, an online publication produced by the hosts of this long-running and weekly Berkeley series, Jim Barnard, Jan Dederick, Bruce Bagnell, and Jennette DesBoine.

Participants will be reading their pieces from the publication, and perhaps a little more.

There is an open mic before and after the feature.

Go to the room at the back of the restaurant (or ask one of the servers).

Recommended to get there early to try some of their delicious Tibet-inspired food. Seriously.

Free of charge, though a hat is passed for the feature

The First Naked Bulb Anthology Release Party!

5-8 pm
at
The Night Light
311 Broadway
Oakland, CA

I’ll be part of a release party for the very first Naked Bulb Anthology, which comes out of Oakland’s own more-than-fabulous Naked Bulb reading series. That means I also have a piece in the anthology. Yay! The book contains the work of 23 local writers, and any and all of them might be reading. Whatever happens, this will be a kickass reading.

There will also be a limited open mic.

You can find more current info on their Facebook invite, and I’ll try to update as I can.

Copies of the anthology will be available, OF COURSE.

Hosted by the enigmatic Zephir O’Meara.

Free of charge, though you should bring a few bucks to get a book!

Thursday, February 16, 2017

I will be co-hosting Babar in Exile #7 along with, of course, the unshakable Paul Corman-Roberts.

7 pm
at
The Octopus Literary Salon
2101 Webster Street
Oakland, CA

Featuring:

Jennifer Joseph
and “Honorary Babarian”
William Taylor, Jr.

and you, in a fab – and this time extended open mic

Babar in Exile is a quarterly reading put together by Paul Corman-Roberts and myself, which is meant to be a commemoration and revival of the high energy San Francisco reading series of the 1990’s, Café Babar and Paradise Lounge.  Each reading features a couple former participants of those series, and one “honorary Babarian”, along with an open mic.

So come on down to check out a slice of San Francisco poetry history, now and in the making, and make your way home with a bindle full of inspiration and a thimbleful more hope for the species.

Free of charge
