North Beach Poetry Reading with Heather Bourbeau and Steven Gray

August 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Come listen to Heather Bourbeau and Steven Gray read their works as part of Tuesdays at North Beach, a highly-respected weekly poetry series celebrating internationally acclaimed poets and showcasing local talent.

Steven Gray has lived in San Francisco since the 1970s and reads his work all over town. Sometimes he accompanies other poets on guitar. He has two books of poetry: Shadow on the Rocks (2011), and Jet Shock and Culture Lag (2012). He also writes reviews for Litseen.

Heather Bourbeau’s fiction and poetry have been published in 100 Word Story, Alaska Quarterly Review, Cleaver, Eleven Eleven, Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Chalkboard, and The Stockholm Review of Literature. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and her work has been featured in several anthologies, including “Nothing Short Of 100: Selected Tales from 100 Word Story” (Outpost 19) and the upcoming “I Just Wanna Testify: Poems About Detroit Music” (Michigan State University Press) and “America, We Call Your Name: Poems of Resistance and Resilience” (Sixteen Rivers Press).

The library in North Beach is at 850 Columbus.  After the reading some of us will go to Specs to recover from a rarified exposure to the spoken word.
