Thursdays at Readers

By Katie Sue Ambellan

Poetry, coffee, books and the Bay-what do all of these stimulants have in common?  

Readers Cafe & Bookstore!

In addition to slanging the Bay Area’s best priced used books and Blue Bottle Coffee, the folks over there have just announced the Thursdays at Readers 2011 Poetry Series.

Beginning in March, Readers Cafe & Bookstore is the place to be to hear poetry’s top names including musician Jonathan Richman, author Alejandro Murguia, California Poet Laureate Al Young, actress Amber Tamblyn and more.

Curated and hosted by Friends of the SFPL’s Poet-in-Residence, Jack Hirschman, the 2011 Poetry Series kicks off this Thursday, March 3rd with beat poet David Meltzer and Julie Rogers.

They’ve got specially priced drinks and snacks and all purchases at Readers Cafe & Bookstore support the San Francisco Public Library.  How awesome is that?
