Poet Beau Beausoleil
followed by an open mic

Beau Beausoleil reads from his collection War News, a digital book published by AGITATE! War News is a collection of 90 poems, written one a day since October 8, 2023. The poems in the collection reflect on what it means to bear witness to war, killing and destruction in Gaza, Palestine. It asks, ‘what does it means to be alive at a time when even the death and suffering of children fails to elicit a response strong enough to end the war.’ This collection of 90 poems is a witness testimony from afar. It is an archive of grief, mourning and solidarity. It is an accounting of the cost of war. Through these powerful and devastating poems Beau reminds us that we cannot turn away. In the poet’s own words, “[O]ur humanity, our collective morality, requires that we bear witness and then take some kind of action.” Beau’s reading will…

Walker Talks! on Rumi

December 17th is the night that dervishes around the world whirl, each in their own place, celebrating the passage of the great wise man Rumi into the unseen realms. They celebrate the gift of his life and thought, which still inspires now, even after seven hundred and fifty years. Rumi’s rapturous turns of phrase, carried across into so many languages, are only one facet of his gem-like mind. His literary works are full of themes and settings which reveal a much more common world than we might otherwise presume, given such a mystifying reputation. The enraptured one could actually be any one of us, but we might not know it, having become habituated to not seeing it. Rumi’s thoughts challenge us every bit as much as they succor us. You might even say that their challenge is simply a facet of the inspirational jewel which is Rumi’s live-giving gift. Tonight,…

Your donation to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project helps us pay for a multitude of operating expenses necessary to present, promote and preserve local music, poetry, and more.

Help us keep the arts alive and thriving!

The Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project was created in 2007 "to present, document and archive the creative work of significant living writers and musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area, for a neighborhood audience and future generations." We've been doing that very thing for more than a decade and a half, continuing the work we began when the store was established in 1999.

Due to lapses in tax filings during and post-pandemic, the BBCLP's status as a registered nonprofit was suspended at the beginning of April 2024 while we reapply, which is expected to take about six months. Donations made after April 1st will not be tax-deductible until nonprofit status is restored.

However, we continue to present a full slate of programming live music and poetry, and producing literary chapbooks, and we seek and welcome your continued financial support in the interim. If a tax-deduction is not a major reason for your support to date, we hope you'll continue to ride with us while we navigate these next several months.
