Come celebrate the 12th Annual Charles Bukowski Memorial Reading in The Gallery @Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 7pm! Doors open 6:30pm.
This highly anticipated yearly event is hosted by Three Rooms Press co-directors Kat Georges and Peter Carlaftes and features readings from various authors as well as prizes including a collection of poetry, cds, rare videos, and rare photos. Held since 2008, the event will feature performances of Bukowski poems and tales by a unique cast of talented fans including famed monologist Mike Daisey, NYTs bestselling author Reed Farrel Coleman, world-renowned poet George Wallace, playwright/novelist Richard Vetere (Champagne and Cocaine), playwright Michael Puzzo (Spirits of Exit Eleven), poet Puma Perl (Retrograde), and performance artist Diane O’Debra. Admission is $10. A limited open mic will be available for audience members wanted to share their personal favorite Bukowski poem (under 3 minutes).
Charles Bukowski was considered the champion of the outsiders, the lost, the lonely, and the outcasts of society. His work is still vividly relevant today. Overall, Bukowski wrote about the human condition, something that can be applied to any time period regardless of changes in technology, politics, or societal conflict.
Doors open at 6:30pm. (for best seating please arrive early).
All attendees have a chance to win Bukowski books, CDs, DVDs, and other prizes!
