My Rock Star- Ferlinghetti Reading tomorrow

Say what you will, and despite gracing the cover of Poets & Writers, Lawrence Ferlinghetti is still under rated in the lens of American Poetry- in regards to his own poety- A Coney Island of the Mind, These are My Rivers, and most recently Americus- Book One, and what he has done for poetry. Let's just say City Lights: Prevert, Ginsburg, O'hara...

I've tried for about a year now to get him to read at the Teachers and Writers Collaborative Reading Series that I curate along with Jared and Adam but no such luck. So I'll be in line at 92Y and so should you!
