City Lights presents “The Poetic City” at the Night of Ideas.
Saturday, February 2nd, 8:00-9:00pm, San Francisco, CA: SF Library, Main Branch


What is the “Poetic City” of San Francisco? The City at our feet, the City behind us, the one in our heads, the one breathing down our necks? Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going?

Poems, songs, anti-poems, and more from an inspired crew of local artists and writers including: Julien Poirier, Ash Tré Philips, Kim Shuck, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Robert Andrew Perez, Ava Koohbor, Lisa Gray-Garcia, Josiah Luís Alderete, Thea Matthews, Jack Hirschman, and Flavia Mora.

Join us on February 2nd, 2019 when the San Francisco Public Library, SFMOMA, and the French Consulate in SF unite to present a seven-hour marathon of debate, performance, readings, screenings, and music featuring big thinkers from SF and beyond as we envision the “city of the future.”  This event is free and open to all!
