WordSpace is pleased to announce the addition of OPP to its growing roster of sponsored programs. This repertory poetry reading series, created and hosted by WordSpace’s Program Director Joe Milazzo, is currently in its inaugural (2016 – 2017) season. Every other month, OPP presents one poet, and one book of great poetry, from cover to cover.

For its first program of 2017, Other People’s Poetry is proud to present the poetry of Bob Kaufman, one of the original Beat poets of the late 1950’s San Francisco scene. We will be reading his City Lights Pocket Poets volume, the long out-of-print Golden Sardine, alongside a few other poems from his New Directions collections Solitudes Crowded With Loneliness and The Ancient Rain.
