SF International Poetry Festival

Poetry in Motion: SF International Poetry Festival

 

 

For anyone who thinks North Beach has lost its way as a leading literary light, shrouded o’er by a toxic cloud of weekend rowdies, think again.

Last night, every descendant of Ginsberg’s angel-headed hipsters within a world-wide radius clamored to Jack Kerouac Alley for the joyful kick-off of the 2nd San Francisco International Poetry Festival.

Founded by former SF Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman, that raffish North Beach raconteur and beloved “poet of the people,” this now-biennial bash is a solid hit.
