POETS! 1st & 3rd Mondays
Jorge Argueta and Jerry Ferraz
Jorge Argueta and Jerry Ferraz share the featured slots on tonight’s reading — which coincidentally is Jerry’s birthday!
Jerry has been hosting our reading series for more than a dozen years, and was on the first bill of poets we ever presented here. He’s a native son of the city, and has been wandering the streets with his pint sized guitars for decades, performing enigmatic yet epic song-poems and taking in the city around us. Surely, his heritage comes from the bardic and troubadour traditions of time gone by.
Jorge has had a long and beautiful career in poetry, and bilingual children’s books as well. He has a warm heart, a fierce strength and a sage demeanor — and a beautiful way with language in both Spanish and English.
An open mic follows.
