Gears Turning Poetry : Moore Jr., Ferraz, + Rades
July 10, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
July’s reading is about community. We’ve got two poets who have come to the Bay from parts east and one home grown poet. All three of these great writers have helped to foster a mutually supportive, dedicated and healthy poetry scene while being from and of very different places.
Leroy F. Moore Jr. is a dedicated activist, a solid community member and a fierce poet. His first book, Black Kripple Delivers Poetry and Lyrics is the result of many years of writing and reading in the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world. His writing touches issues of poverty, feminism, disability and various forms of injustice. His work ranges from lyric to anthemic.
Jerry Ferraz has been a fixture in various poetry venues through the years. From Café Babar to Bird and Beckett this poet has written, played his guitar, curated and fostered other poets for decades. Come hear him here at Modern Times and also catch his regular reading series at Bird and Beckett in Glen Park.
Jane Rades holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her paintings and poems reveal the edges of vision in the everyday. Her books A Rosary of Poems, Five Decades and Two Years in the Tarot, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Fortuneteller as well as her deck of tarot cards all invite the reader/viewer to look deep.
