THIRTEEN WAYS: A Group Reading and Filming
One of the Bay Area's longest-standing poetry groups arrives to read at The Booksmith and to film the event to post on YouTube. Thirteen Ways writers reading this afternoon are Idris Anderson, Beverly Burch, Lisa Gluskin-Stonestreet, George Higgins, Diane Kirsten-Martin, Zack Rogow, Melissa Stein, and Robert Thomas.
Individually the poets have won national prizes and awards. As a group, they meet one Sunday a month for a potluck and critique session. Thirteen Ways began in 1987, and though the members have changed over the years, the poets continue to enjoy one another's writing, company, and cooking, not to mention a little bit of literary gossip.
