POETS! Alice Rogoff, Kim Shuck & Kristen Jensen
open mic follows – Jerry Ferraz hosts

It’s a long-standing tradition at Bird & Beckett– Featured local poets and an open mic for locals and visitors to the city alike.  Twice a month, on the first and third Monday of the month.  Jerry Ferraz, a near legendary peripatetic bard & troubadour, hosts the evening, and opens the open mic.

Alice edits the Haight Ashbury Literary Review as well as writing assiduously. Sings in the Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Chorus as well.

Kim ShuckKim works in textiles and teaches as well as writing, paying particular attention in all her endeavors to the implications of her Native American roots.

Kristen lived in San Francisco eight years, publishing poems in the Haight Ashbury Review and writing a history of the Caffe Trieste and a biographer of its founder, Giovanni Giotta. In 2005 she departed and ended up in Dubai; now she splits her time between Saudi Arabia and Georgia. She’s back for a visit, and has been invited by her old friend Alice to join in this reading.

The open is always scattered with a few particularly satisfying gems.

Do come, whether to read or just to listen.
