POETS! Jim Queen and J.B. Frame
open mic follows
Monday, March 7 – 7-9pm
J.B. Frame is a frequent reader in the Monday night open mic, a sometimes wry and always observant, perceptive and considered voice in poetry. We’re pleased to present him in a full-length reading tonight.
James Queen is a former high school English teacher, and a lover of art, plants, and tender moments. His poetry generously explores the topics of love, loss, travel, and handsome men. Jim has a new collection of poems to present, and what’s more, many will remember him as a genial and kind presence behind the register for a few years back in the late 1990’s at Glen Park Books on Diamond Street; he remains a Glen Park resident to this day. His book is available at the store.
Our twice-monthly poetry series (1st & 3rd Mondays) is hosted by peripatetic bard and troubadour Jerry Ferraz, a Eureka valley native who proves the adage that if you remember the ’60s, you didn’t really experience them.
