Taken from an idea of poetry readings started by poets Sonnet Graham and Jeffrey McDaniels a few years back in New York, we are very excited about the first installment of our very own 6 x 6 Poetry Night, featuring twelve diverse and talented poets from all over San Diego County (well... one coming down from Los Angeles). We have put together six men and six women, and will alternate male/female with each poet reading for 6 minutes. This reading is in conjunction with our current series The Saturdays of May with Matt Curreri, and will also feature live music by Mr. Curreri & The Exfriends and Joanie Mendenhall.
Saturday, May 23rd @ The Andrews Gallery.
The night begins at 7PM and the performances will run until 10:30PM
