Friday to Wednesday at Bird & Beckett

Poets Monday night…
and, then, the night train to Lisbon…arriving Wednesday…


MONDAY (4/4) – 7:00 to 9:00 pm
POETS! Hosted by Jerry Ferraz
Jason Morris and Patrick James Dunagan

Patrick James Dunagan‘s new book is There Are People Who Say That Painters Shouldn’t Talk:  A GUSTONBOOK, just published by the Post-Apollo Press. His work has been published in many magazines, including AMERARCANA 2011: A Bird & Beckett Review. Next month he’ll be at The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church in NYC. This month, we’ve got him… as for Jason Morris?  He writes, he thinks, he tends bar.  Pours whiskey, takes money, pays the rent, writes poems. He is the editor of Push Press and author of Spirits and Anchors and the Golden West Notebook. An open mic follows; always erratic, always interesting, it’s worth your while.
