Event Details



Join us Friday night, September 20 for a reading by legendary beat poets David Meltzer and Julie Rogers. Meltzer will also be giving an interactive seminar on Saturday afternoon, September 21 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Eventbrite tickets available under separate listing. 

DAVID MELTZER began his literary career as a “Beat Poet” during the San Francisco Poetry Renaissance. He has authored over 40 books including poetry, fiction, essays, and numerous anthologies and collections of interviews such as San Francisco Beat: Talking with the Poets. His most recent book, When I Was A Poet, # 60 in the Pocket Poet’s Series published by City Lights, came out in 2011. Last year he was nominated for the Northern California Book Award in Poetry. Next year his book 'Two-Way Mirror' will be reprinted by City Lights. Diane diPrima, Poet Laureate of SF, writes, “David Meltzer is a hidden adept, one of the secret treasures on our planet. Great poet, musician, comic; mystic unsurpassed, performer with few peers.” Lawrence Ferlinghetti, author and founder of City Lights insists, “One of the greats of post-WW Two SF poets and musicians. He brought music to poetry and poetry to music!” Visit the website: www.meltzerville.com

JULIE ROGERS has published five chapbooks and a selected collection of poetry spanning thirty years of work, House Of The Unexpected, currently being considered for the Northern California Book Award. In 2007, her Buddhist hospice manual, Instructions for the Transitional State, was released by Vimala. She has read on public radio and television, and at many venues in Oregon and California. Her poems have been featured in various journals and anthologies such as Poetry USA, Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, Big Scream, The Café Review, Poetry Flash, and Beatitude – Golden Anniversary 1959 – 2009. Beat Poet Michael McClure says of her work, “Few poems are written as close to the heart -- no extra words just soul meanings...” Sharon Doubiago, Oregon Book Award For Poetry winner, wrote, “She articulates the inarticulate.” Visit the website:www.julrogers.com.

David Meltzer and Julie Rogers have been performing their work together since 2010. They will read separately and also in the manner of a back and forth duet, referred to as "Fours" in jazz terms.
