Speculative fiction writers
Tobey Hiller and John Teton
followed by an open mic,
hosted by Michael Koch and Jerry Ferraz
Jerry Ferraz and Michael Koch host featured poets (and in this case, prose fiction writers),
on the first Thursday of each month, with an open mic following the featured readers.
Live in the shop and live streamed on Bird & Beckett’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
Tobey Hiller is the author of six books: a novel, four collections of poetry—the latest CROW MIND from Finishing Line Press—and, most recently, a book of short stories, FLIGHT ADVICE; A FABULARY, from Unlikely Books, which she’ll be reading from tonight. Tobey was a finalist for Omnidawn’s 2019 Fantasy Contest. Her stories have won prizes as well as ending up (frustratingly) on short lists. Her poetry and flash can be found in a variety of magazines and anthologies, for instance Ambush Review, Askew, Spillway, Mediterranean Poetry, Shotglass Journal, The Fabulist: Words & Art, Sin Fronteras/Writers without Borders, great weather for MEDIA as well as FIRE AND RAIN: ECOPOETRY OF CALIFORNIA, Scarlet Tanager’s wonderful collection of California poets and poems. She has always been fascinated with myths & magical tales, though not all her stories feature surreal happenings.
Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
