David_MeltzerDavid Meltzer’s a brilliant poet and he could use a hand!  So come give him a hand, and let’s put together some funds to meet medical expenses.  A $20 donation at the door is requested, though we’ll not turn anyone away as long as space allows!  And much larger donations are definitely encouraged and appreciated.  We’ll also sell a signed letterpress broadside that David’s working up with Nick Whittington as we speak!

Colleagues Clark Coolidge, Sunnylyn Thibodeaux, Andrew Joron, Les Gottesman and Julie Rogers will read poems.  Cloud Shepherd and The Rabbles will play music.  Wine, beer and abundant high spirits guaranteed!

Can’t make it on November 9th?  No worries!  Visit Meltzerville at this link and it will take you to a place where you can donate to the fund!
