June 2016 Poetry at Florey's!

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

***Saturday, June 25th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are: Richard Loranger and Ken Saffran. The featured poets will be followed by an open mic period. Open mic sign-up is first come, first served. This event is open to the public and free of charge. You are welcome to bring a snack or beverage to share.

From Sherri, the host:

" I invite you to join me, Aaron and our two fine featured poets, Richard Loranger and Ken Saffran, as they regale us with their poetic vision. Please bring a snack or drink to share, if you're able to, and some work of your own or a favorite poet's to add in your voice at open mic. It promises to be a fine and festive evening.

It is also Bob's birthday (he would have been 70), and I'm planning to read some of the poems he wrote in his early life. If you'd care to read something for him at open mic, it would be very welcome. Since he was my co-creator for this poetry series, and did so much to make our evenings welcoming, warm and smooth-running, it feels appropriate to salute him at this reading."

About the featured readers:

Richard Loranger is a writer, performer, visual artist, and all around squeaky wheel, currently residing in Oakland , CA . His new book of flash prose, Sudden Windows (Zeitgeist Press, 2016), has been enthusiastically received. He is also the author of the Poems for Teeth, The Orange Book, and nine chapbooks. Other recent work can be found in Oakland Review #2, Overthrowing Capitalism vol. 2 (Revolutionary Poets Brigade), and the new anthology The Careless Embrace of the Boneshaker (great weather for MEDIA). You can find more about his work and scandals at
