||La Bodega Gallery presents
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington
Thursday May 25th Lizzie Wann will be our featured reader. Lizzie was an integral part of the development of the San Diego poetry scene in the early 2000s. She helped bring the poetry slam to the city, created her own readings, and produced original shows that featured poets and musicians. She has hosted readings at venues across the city including Java Joe’s, Urban Grind, Claire de Lune, and the Grassroots Oasis. She also founded and hosted the Meeting Grace house concert series that ran from 2000-2008. Her work appears on CDs (A Wing & A Prayer and A New Leaf), in chapbooks including Familiars, Naked Wrists, and Complicated Skies and in anthologies including Comstock Review, Incidental Buildings & Accidental Beauty, A Year in Ink, volume 2, So Luminous the Wildflowers, and The San Diego Poetry Annual.
After Lizzie's reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read.
