Monday, November 5th
POETS! on food and love
Jennifer Barone reads from Saporoso
in a program with Jacques Korn

Monday, November 5th – 7:00 p.m.
Featured poets plus an open mic
on the 1st & 3rd Monday of each month,
with m.c. Jerry Ferraz, peripatetic troubadour.

Both poets will be reading poems on food and love, sometimes, though not necessarily, at the same time…

Jennifer Barone reads from her new book Saporoso – poems of Italian food & love. Jennifer hosts the long-running monthly WordParty poetry & jazz night at Viracocha and is a winner of the SF Public Library’s 2012 Poets Eleven city-wide poetry contest for North Beach, district 3. Visit www.thewordparty.com for more info on Jennifer.

Jacques Korn springs from France and now Sausalito. He is a celebrated featured poet in most popular, local venues for poetry, and is also a filmmaker.  Jacques’ recent film, titled “In the moment”, features local San Francisco poets on the poetry scene.

Bring your own work for the open mic, or just stay and listen.
