Tuesday, 10/9 at 7 PM - Lawrence Ferlinghetti reads from his new book, Poetry As Insurgent Art at the Booksmith on Haight Street in San Francisco. I have the book and it is sort of a guidebook for would-be poets. Mr. Ferlinghetti's sense of humor is great and this reading should be a lot of fun. I enjoyed hearing him read from the book this past Tuesday in Berkeley.
10/10 - Photographer Robert Altman is showing slides of his photos and signing copies of his new book, The Sixties, also at the Booksmith on Haight. There are some great shots in that book, including a wonderful picture of John "Marmaduke" Dawson (New Riders of the Purple Sage). John's mom, Ruth, said this is her favorite picture of him.
