POETS! 1st & 3rd Monday of Every Month
Featured poets plus an open mic
hosted by B&B’s resident troubadour, Jerry Ferraz.
Philip Fried has published five books of poetry, the most recent being Early/Late: New and Selected Poems (Salmon, 2011). Publishers Weekly called that book “skillful and memorable,” and The Literary Review declared, “In realms between and including the Almighty and actuarial tables, Fried speaks every language faithfully and eloquently. Rejoice! Read!”
Christopher Bernard is author of the novel A Spy in the Ruins, which Spanish novelist Juan Goytisolo called “the best American novel … since those of Thomas Pynchon and William Gass.” He is also the founder and co-editor (with Ho Lin) of the webzine Caveat Lector, where he also serves as poetry editor and creative director. He also writes as a critic-at-large for Synchronized Chaos International Magazine, covering art, music, theater, films and literature; writes plays; publishes photographs; and has written the libretto and composed the music for the opera Nachtstück: The Death of Anton Webern. He is currently working on a series of poetry videos and a formalist-expressionist novel. More of his poems can be read his blog “The Bog of St. Philinte.”
