October 23, 8:00-9:00 PM: Virtual broadcast of Dia de los Vagabundos. This program honors the anniversary of Kerouac’s passing with a poetry “ofrenda” to our literary ancestors, with performances recorded at The Studio at 620 and Flamingo Bar. We will explore the rich history and culture of the Mexican holiday Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) as local poets read original poems along with works from writers of the Beat Generation. This event features Denzel Johnson Green of Community Poetry and other special guests. Want to contribute an original poem or a reading from a Beat Generation poet? Contact kerouachouse@gmail.com.
