POETS! every 1st & 3rd Monday
Monday, December 17th – 7-9 pm
Readings followed by an open mic

San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck and peripatetic troubadour Jerry Ferraz present our twice-monthly poetry readings, every 1st and 3rd Monday — two featured readers followed by an open mic.

Tonight, they’ve enlisted Norm Mattox and Julian Tirhma as the featured poets.  Norm is a legendary SFUSD math teacher. His poetry has featured at Poem Jam at the Main Library and in the most recent chapbook from United Booksellers, “The City is Already Speaking.”

Julian née Sara Mithra hovers between genre and gender, border mongering and mongreling. Their first book, If the Color is Fugitive (Nomadic Press, 2018) follows vagrants around the collapsing frontier during a queer elsewhen. Read their essay about marginalization and anger, “Biking the Fringe,” in VOICES (Brain Mill Press). They teach writing to young people.
