Howl: Poetry Reading & Community Open Mic

Readings of Beat Era writers associated with the S.S. Vallejo — read your own favorites!

Co-Presented by The New school
Moderated by Steve Heilig

Enjoy readings of Beat Era writers and thinkers associated with the S.S. Vallejo including Alan Watts, Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Jack Kerouac, and Maya Angelou.

Hear selections from On the Mesa: An Anthology of Bolinas Writing, published in 1971 by City Lights when Bolinas was a mecca for poets representing two generations that shared a similar bohemian philosophy such as Joanne Kyger, David Meltzer, Robert Creeley, and Bill Berkson.

Read your own favorites or share your own short poems inspired by this great literary renaissance.
