TUESDAYS AT NORTH BEACH

WHERE: North Beach Branch Library
WHEN: Every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
WHAT: Free poetry readings

Join us every Tuesday evening in the historic literary epicenter of San Francisco to hear poets from near and far read their work!

Tuesdays at North Beach is a highly-respected weekly poetry series celebrating internationally acclaimed poets and showcasing local talent. Past guests have included Jonathan Richman, Diane di Prima, California Poet Laureate Al Young and freshly-discovered poets from our sister program, Poets 11.

The series is presented by Friends and curated by Friends’ Poet-in-Residence, Jack Hirschman. 

Interested in reading? Please contact Friends’ Literary Director Byron Spooner at byron.spooner@friendssfpl.org or call (415) 522-8602.

Note: Tuesdays at North Beach is a curated reading. The participating poets are invited to read and the schedule is set up well in advance of the events. Only when a scheduled poet cancels too late to locate a substitute do we revert to an open reading format.
