June 2017 Poetry at Florey's.

Florey's Books invites you to our ongoing poetry event!

***Saturday, June 24th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are Clifford Hunt and Christine Rodgers.

From Sherri:

I'm pleased to invite you to join Aaron and me as we welcome Half Moon Bay poet Clifford Hunt, and San Francisco poet Christine Rodgers for an evening of their artistry, and hope you will consider joining us. Remember that open mic comes first, at 7:30, followed by the break, and featured poets.

You are invited to read at open mic (3 minutes, please), either your own, or a favorite poets's work, or come simply to revel in the luxury of artful language. If you can, please bring a snack or beverage to share, or supplies for the table (paper plates, napkins, cups); this is such a help in making a truly convivial evening.

About the featured poets:

Before that, he lived and worked in Bethel Alaska, San Francisco, Seattle, Arcata, San Diego, and Beirut, Lebanon.

In 2000 she appeared as a panelist in The Forum at Grace Cathedral entitled “The Creative Spirit in Poetry” – with Francisco X. Alarcon, Judy Grahn and Dean Alan Jones. She is grateful to the many Jesuits who have included her as a partner in their ministry. Her poems have been used in a number of retreat centers, and some are still floating around Africa.
