poets Devreaux Baker
and Doren Robbins
open mic follows

Devreaux BakerDevreaux Baker and Doren Robbins will converge on Bird & Beckett for what promises to be a rich and rewarding reading, she from Mendocino and he from Santa Cruz.  Though they haven’t met, they’ve known and admired each other’s poetry and are anxious for this chance to share the stage.

“One enters Devreaux Baker’s [work] as one would sacred terrain. These poems are spare, tactile and textured, but they hover between worlds.” — Cynthia Hogue

Doren Robbins came to poetry and literature in the late 1960s as a result of a cascading chain of influential encounters with writers through their books, from Henry Miller to Kenneth Rexroth to Arthur Rimbaud and far beyond.  His lifelong activism was similarly spurred by the ferment he found around himself in those days.
